    • Abstract


      Penicillin at concentrations non-inhibitory to the vegetative growth was found to inhibit sporulation inBacillus polymyxa 2459. The effect of penicillin was shown to be at the level of spore-specific mucopeptide synthesis. Penicillin had no effect on the early events such as DNA and protein synthesis in sporogenesis The sensitive period of inhibition was between T0 to T2 hours of sporulation.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
