Attack of pulped fibres by erosion bacteria

Attack of pulped fibres by erosion bacteria

Material und Organismen 22(4): 257-269

TEM of the attack of chemically pulped Pinus sylvestris fibres by erosion bacteria revealed that the bacteria first attached to the fibre wall and then degraded it by localized enzymic activity. Erosion troughs of a definite concave form developed: these appeared to be empty of wall contents. A diffuse mass of granular material (possibly a mixture of residual wall components and bacterial slime) was widely present.
