||The transfer of liposome-encapsulated ferritin was vizualized
in ultrathin sections of cell envelopes treated with liposomes,
for 30 min. The incubation mixture was fixed in 2.5% formaldehyde
and further processed as described (Eisenbach &
Adler, 1981). Embedding was in Epon 812. Thin sections
(400-500 Å thick) were cut with a Sorval MT2 ultramicrotome
and collected on formvar-coated grids. All micrographs
were taken in a JEOL JEM-7 electron microscope, operated
at 80 kV.
count in ca. 200 cell envelopes indicates that there are some
75±20 ferritin molecules/µm^2.
