Visualization of Cell Complexity in the Filamentous Cyanobacterium Mastigocladus laminosus by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
Authors:  Dennis J. Nürnberg, Giulia Mastroianni, Conrad W. Mullineaux and Graham D. McPhail, date: 12/05/2014, view: 3941, Q&A: 0
The cyanobacterium Mastigocladus laminosus (M. laminosus) is one of the most morphologically complex prokaryotes. It forms long chains of cells that are connected via septal junction complexes; such complexes allow diffusion of ...
