Figure 1

Epifluorescence phase contrast microscopy of Bdellovibrio with a Bd3460::mCherry tag. Fluorescence is seen in the small, attack phase cells at times 0 and 240 min, and increases as the Bdellovibrio enter the prey, which rounds up to form a ‘bdelloplast’. As the Bdellovibrio cell grows inside the bdelloplast, the fluorescence becomes dissipated in the larger, cylindrical cell (T=180 min). Scale bar, 1 μm.
