I think it is because the dead bacteria, which are intracellular when alive, are degraded, and their LPS (the lipid A moiety specifically) is presented on the cells to the immune system, causing an endotoxin response.

Is there perhaps more to the sentence that you read that in? It might be able to provide context.

Yeah, JackBean is right on the money. If you've ever seen any live videos of mitosis in progress, then I'm sure you've seen how quickly anaphase happens relative to the rest of the cell cycle. Example video here, though I'm sure there are even better ones out there:

Probably because it
1. Is gigantic for a bacterial cell.
2. Has strange morphological features, like invaginations, vesicles, and tubules.
3. Reproduces strangely.

It was found to be bacterial after rRNA sequencing.
