Different microbiology texts I have checked list mesosomes as "tube
shaped cell membrane invaginations that are formed by some Gram positive
bacteria"  Microbiology, dynamics and diversity (Perry and Staley). 
However, Tortora Funcke and Case lists these structures as artifacts. 
Can anyone point me to a reference regarding the current status of the
mesosome?  
Cheers.
