Abstract

Summary: Large colonies of which were about 700 m thick were frozen in liquid nitrogen and sectioned horizontally. The sections were disrupted and several oxidative enzymes were assayed in the crude unfractionated homogenates. In the top 120 m of the colonies the specific activities of the enzymes were high and characteristic of aerobically adapted cells. Cells nearer the base of colonies had very low enzyme activities.
