Determining the bacterial cell biology of planctomycetes

Christian Boedeker, Margarete Sch├╝ler, Greta Reintjes, Olga Jeske, Muriel C. F. van Teeseling et al.

Bacteria of the phylum Planctomycetes have been previously reported to possess several features that are typical of eukaryotes, such as cytosolic compartmentalization and endocytosis-like macromolecule uptake. However, recent evidence points towards a Gram-negative cell plan for Planctomycetes, although in-depth experimental analysis has been hampered by insufficient genetic tools…
