Namegas vesicle
DescriptionGas vesicles are gas-filled hollow protein structures, visible by phase-contrast microscopy, that confer bouyancy. They occur in cyanobacteria, anoxyphototrophic bacteria, halophilic archaea, at least one soil bacterium (Bacillus megaterium). GvpA and GvpC are the characterized structural proteins, but it seems at least 10 genes are required.
