How Bacteria Reproduce?


Reproduction in Bacteria

In general terms, reproduction means that living things create new species with similar structure and character in order to continue their lineage and reproduce for this purpose. In unicellular and multicellular organisms, reproduction generally develops under the same or similar rules.

Microorganisms such as bacteria, rickettsia, some fungi and protozoa reproduce asexually. Bacteria usually reproduce by dividing into two. For example, the reproduction stages of a rod-shaped bacterium are as follows.

a) First, the bacterial cell lengthens and begins to develop slowly. The DNA in the cell and the other parts that need to be divided are divided into two.

b) The cell wall indents towards the center, perpendicular to the longitudinal axis, from near the middle of the bacterium.

c) The cytoplasmic membrane is formed along this line.

d) Then the cell divides into two in the form of a double-layered membrane compartment. Extending between these two cytoplasmic layers, the cell divides into two. After forming the cell wall by extending between these two cytoplasmic layers, it divides into two daughter cells. The cytoplasm of the mother cell and all the formations and enzymes it contains were transferred to these daughter cells in equal proportion.
