Sample text

When bacteria are cultured in a closed vessel, growth passes through a sequence of phases. 5. The lag phase is a period following inoculation of bacteria into the medium during which there is little or no increase in cell numbers. It is a period of adjustment required when cells are transferred from one set of conditions to another. A lag period can occur, for example, if the bacteria come from an old culture where the cells were in a sickly condition and starved of nutrients. The cells require time to build up nutrients before growth can re-start.

Such cytoplasmic flow produces projections, called pseudopodia, of the flexible cell surface. 11 ). Amoeboid movement is driven by ATP which causes bundles of actin fibres, located immediately below the cytoplasmic membrane, to move against each other.

Bacterial DNA is not associated with proteins and, for this reason, it is sometimes described as 'naked' DNA. For the same reason, some biologists recommend that the term chromosome be reserved for the eukaryotic structure.
