The spirochetal end shapes produced by the course of this membrane vary from blunt to pointed (Fig. 1). These variations were consistently observed in all isolates, including B31 and IRS which were cloned several times by limiting dilution and then examined at different periods of growth. Similar results were obtained when negative staining profiles were compared against profiles obtained by TEM of spirochetes in tick tissues or against proflles obtained by SEM (Hayes et a1.
