2005 (English)In: Journal of Bacteriology, ISSN 0021-9193, E-ISSN 1098-5530, Vol. 187, no 5, 1856-1858 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Flow cytometry and epifluorescence microscopy results for the euryarchaeon Methanothermobacter thermautotrophicus were consistent with filaments containing multiple cells. Filaments of one to four cells contained two to eight nucleoids. Single chromosome-containing cells were not observed. Filaments containing multiple genome copies displayed synchronous DNA replication initiation. Chromosome segregation occurred during replication or rapidly after replication termination.
