Figure 3

Morphology of S. epidermidis 1457 ΔlytSR under transmission electron microscope. Strains of S. epidermidis 1457, ΔlytSR and ΔatlE were cultured in TSB till stationary phase, fixed with 2.5% glutaraldehyde in Dulbecco's phosphate-buffered saline (PBS). Thin sections were stained with 1% uranyl acetate-lead acetate and observed under a Philips Tecnai-12 Biotwin transmission electron microscope. A-C ×8,200 magnification of 1457, ΔlytSR and ΔatlE cells respectively; D-F ×43,000 magnification of 1457, ΔlytSR and ΔatlE cells respectively.
