Abstract

Surface structures of Bacteroides nodosus were examined by electron microscopy. Collodion film and chrome shadowing were used for maximizing the visualization of B nodosus pili and ring structures. The existence of B nodosus pili in foot rot lesions was confirmed. Contrary to previous reports, it was found that B nodosus pili production can be retained through serial broth transfer under certain conditions. Capsule production by B nodosus was irregular in that it could be either lacking or variable in thickness. A bacteriophage capable of infecting B nodosus also was detected.
