Abstract

SUMMARY: The life cycle in closely resembles that of the non-sporing eubacteria.

The haploid microcyst germinates, the resulting cell containing two paired chromosomes reproducing vegetatively. An autogamous fusion and subsequent reduction division precede the maturation of the microcyst.

differs from by the absence of fruiting body formation, and in the details of its nuclear cycle. These bacteria may possibly be regarded as the ancestors of the higher myxobacteria.
