Its morphological properties survey based on 18S rDNA analysis showed that this strain has the most similarity to Fusarium exosporium.
La espora, que en terminos morfologicos difiere significativamente de la celula vegetativa, esta compuesta en la mayoria de los casos por una envoltura externa conocida como exosporium, seguida hacia el interior por las capas de proteina de la cubierta y la corteza, que esta conformada por peptidoglicano.
However, the absence of this step in some strains of this collection is similar to the one observed in Bacillus sphaericus, were the binary protein crystal is adhered to the spore and covered by the exosporium membrane.
