Abstract

Mutants of temperature sensitive in spore outgrowth and showing altered morphology were examined by ultrathin sectioning and electron microscopy. Cells from spores outgrowing at 47 °C were often spherical with incomplete cross-walls. Cells intersected irregularly by randomly distributed cross-walls were also seen. The presence of sublethal doses of the antibiotic Distamycin A restored the ability to grow as rods, but did not completely restore the capacity to synthesize cross-walls in the correct position.
