The ultrastructural distribution of the cellulosome (a cellulose-binding, multicellulase-containing protein complex) on the cell surface of Clostridium thermocellum YS was examined by cytochemical techniques and immunoelectron microscopy. When cells of the bacterium were grown on cellobiose, cellulosome complexes were compacted into quiescent exocellular protuberant structures. However, when the same cells were grown on cellulose, these polycellulosomal organelles underwent extensive structural… CONTINUE READING
