Involvement of a Collar Structure in Polar Growth and Cell Division of Strain DCB-1

By William W. Mohn, Timothy G. Linkfield, H. Stuart Pankratz and James M. Tiedje

Abstract

Microscopic methods were used to investigate the unique collar structure of the gram-negative sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain DCB-1. Polar cell growth apparently occurred from the collar. When the daughter cell was approximately equal in length to the mother cell and the collar was thus centrally located, cell division occurred within the collar region. Division was by a novel mechanism which conserved the collar of the mother cell and gave rise to a new collar of the daughter cell. Cells of DCB-1 were also found to contain stacked internal membranes and glycogen bodies
