Abstract

Escherichia coli, can have a filamentous growth form due to mutation. Through the transmission electron microscopy, bacterial filaments indicates that they are free of septa except in short filaments and near the ends of long filaments. The formation of filaments in this strain of E. coli may have been due to a change in the genetic control of septum formation.
