Abstract

SUMMARY

Thin sections of an anaerobic filamentous oral organism possibly related to have been examined in the electron microscope. The organism exhibited a cell wall profile characteristic of Gram-negative bacteria, . a solid membrane and an outer double-layered membrane. The outer membrane could be removed by treating intact cells with trypsin or phenol-water. The organism contained numerous intracytoplasmic vacuoles.
