Abstract

SUMMARY: By combining nucleus and cell-wall studies on the same bacterial cells, it was demonstrated that many mitosis-like configurations are actually divided by cross-septa. The results do not signify the absence of classical mitotic figures, but they do show that a nuclear study by itself is not sufficient to establish the existence of such configurations in the bacterial cell.
