Magnetosome crystalline habit in Mf. australis strain IT-1. Magnetosome crystalline habit in Mf. australis strain IT-1. a High resolution transmission electron microscopy image of a single magnetosome with elongated octahedral morphology. Inset shows the Fast Fourier Transform with indexed planes and zone axis, (b) Higher magnification image of the dashed boxed are shown in (a), The spacing of fringes shown between white arrows is 4.9 Å, consistent with (1 1 1) spacing for magnetite. c Tomography reconstruction using STEM/HAADF of the magnetosome shown in (a). d Idealized model of magnetosome crystal in same orientation shown in (a)
