Abstract

Macromolecules of the water-soluble complex of bacteriochlorophyll protein can assemble in vitro to form fully developed spherulites composed of radiating microtubules. The changes that occur in the pattern of long-range order during the growth of these structures are typical of the development of the spherulitic crystal habit in numerous other materials of nonbiological origin.
