Blastobacter Cultivation

Mature cells of Blastobacter are rod-shaped, wedge-shaped or claviform, often slightly curved. Its cell size is 0.7-1.0x2.0-4.5 microns. Its cells are arranged directly attached to a common base at their narrow ends to form a rosette, usually with a shiny corpuscle in its center. The structure has no handle. Blastobacter reproduces as single buds appearing at the extremes of free cells. The buds are spherical to oval, 0.3μm wide and immobile.

Abundant growth has been observed in a cylindrical vessel containing iron-laden water from a northern Russian forest. It grows best in areas with reduced iron and pH 6.0.

Originally found in samples from isolated freshwater ponds. The bacteria may be widely distributed in freshwater as an attached microbial taxa.

Blastobacter Culture Service
