Abstract

Filamentous cells of , obtained after treatment with nalidixic acid in the exponential phase of growth, elongated up to 10 μm, corresponding to 4 unit cell lengths, per nucleoid. During elongation, division of nucleoids and septum formation did not occur, but formation of flagella continued. Most of the filamentous cells were motile, and flagella were evenly distributed on their surface.
