Abstract

Two morphologically distinct extracellular stalk fibers produced by Gallionella ferruginea were compared by electron microscopy and elemental analysis. The thick-and fine-fiber stalks were different in structure on a micrometer scale and in the site on the mother cell to which they were attached, but on a nanometer scale they were similar in ultrastructure and in the elemental composition of their basic fiber matrix.
