 Mysterious unicellular microorganism cultured in Japan


The results showed that the growth rate of p. syntrophicum was very slow, and the number doubled every 14-25 days. Further analysis showed that the genome of p. syntrophicum contained a high proportion of eukaryotic like genes, which confirmed the previous DNA analysis. This small spherical cell usually aggregates and grows with other microbial partners. They seem to lack the intracellular organelle like structure of complex eukaryotes, but the external surface has long bulges, which usually branch. Researchers speculate that this protuberance of Archaea may capture the passing bacteria, which are then internalized and eventually evolved into mitochondria. This is likely to lay a foundation for the evolution of eukaryotes. The editor in chief spent ten years cultivating a kind of Archaea? The attitude of Japanese scientists to one track scientific research is really not to say. Dont underestimate these humble archaea, they may contain great scientific research value. For example, have you heard of CRISPR / CAS, a popular gene editing technology? It was discovered by scientists from bacteria and archaea.

Take ten years to cultivate an Archaea? The attitude of Japanese scientists to one track scientific research is really not to say. Dont underestimate these humble archaea, they may contain great scientific research value. For example, have you heard of CRISPR / CAS, a popular gene editing technology? It was discovered by scientists from bacteria and archaea. (reporter Zhang mengran)
