Pyrodictium cannulae enter the periplasmic space but do not enter the cytoplasm, as revealed by cryo-electron tomography

Nickell, Stephan ; Hegerl, Reiner ; Baumeister, Wolfgang ; Rachel, Reinhard



Abstract

The hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrodictium grows in the form of a macroscopically visible network. It consists of cells entrapped in an extracellular matrix of hollow tubules, the "cannulae." Here, we present the three-dimensional structure of a single cell in conjunction with two extracellular cannulae, as determined by cryo-electron microscopy. To achieve this, the information from two ...
