Changes in cell morphology and polyamine composition during growth of Campylobacter jejuni.

Abstract

Resting cells of Campylobacter jejuni were spherical whereas growing cells were mainly spiral. Content of cadaverine increased with the decrease in spherical forms prior to growth commencing but production of spermidine increased in early log phase. Cadaverine and spermidine are possibly involved in changes in cell morphology and growth, respectively.
