The fine structure of nocardia autotrophica

Mikrobiologiya 53(2): 342-345

The fine structure of nocardia autotrophica

The fine structure of N. autotrophica 3LS cells was studied by EM. For the 1st time, individual regions of the mycelium were shown to be capable of intensive division in different directions to form numerous conglomerates of cells having various shapes and sizes. Pleomorphism is typical of hyphae in the substrate and over-substrate parts of a colony, and of the submerged mycelium. At the end of the culture's development, elongated spores with a smooth envelope are formed on aerial hyphae. Substrate hyphae undergo fragmentation to yield spore-like cells with a thick wall.
