Abstract

Abstract

The occurrence of latency and relapse in human melioidosis suggests adaptations by that help to avoid the human immune response. Ruthenium red-stained preparations of bacterial cultures viewed by electron microscopy revealed three morphologically distinct variants; one with a very marked and another with a less electron-dense layer surrounding the cell wall, and a third variety devoid of such a structure. This structure may be attributable to a layer of polysaccharide, suggesting the presence of a glycocalyx that may aid in the survival of the organism during latency.
