Electron microscopic studies of the surface structure of Campylobacter fetus by the freeze-etching method showed two different types of S. layer. One was in a Hexagonal array, and the other was in a tetragonal array. A high-passage-number strain lost its S layer during cultivation on culture media but regained it after a single animal passage.
