Protocol for Inducing akinetes

Inducing akinetes with or without heterocysts
Purpose: Epifluorescence microscopy of promoter-reporter strains.
Differentiating akinetes from other cell types is difficult due to the
reversibility of akinete differentiation; therefore, localization about
halfway between heterocysts supplies associative evidence when
combined with cell morphology.
