Abstract
Samples from periodic cultures of Clostridium perfringens, Clostridium oedematiens, Clostridium tetani and Bifidobacterium bifidum grown in liquid nutrient media were studied after freeze-fracturing and etching without pretreatment by means of chemical agents including cryo-protectants. Subunits in the cell all of Cl. tetani and differences in the distribution of globular particles in the plasma membrane of the investigated bacteria are revealed.
