Under conditions of the spontaneous or induced autolysis of thick cell suspensions,Arthrobacter globiformis strains produced cells exhibiting features typical of resting microbial forms. The number of viable resting cells was greater under conditions of induced rather than spontaneous autolysis. The thermoresistance of the resting cells of A.globiformis strains isolated from 2-to 3 million-year-old permafrost was higher than that of the collectionA. globiformis strain.
