A novel component of the division‐site selection system of Bacillus subtilis and a new mode of action for the division inhibitor MinCD
Cell division in bacteria is governed by a complex cytokinetic machinery in which the key player is a tubulin homologue, FtsZ. Most rod‐shaped bacteria divide precisely at mid‐cell between segregatedExpand

Subcellular localization and characterization of the ParAB system from Corynebacterium glutamicum.
Faithful segregation of chromosomes and plasmids is a vital prerequisite to produce viable and genetically identical progeny. Bacteria use a specialized segregation system composed of theExpand

Characterization and subcellular localization of a bacterial flotillin homologue.
The process of endospore formation in Bacillus subtilis is complex, requiring the generation of two distinct cell types, a forespore and larger mother cell. The development of these cell types isExpand

Cell division in Corynebacterineae
Bacterial cells must coordinate a number of events during the cell cycle. Spatio-temporal regulation of bacterial cytokinesis is indispensable for the production of viable, genetically identicalExpand

A synthetic Escherichia coli system identifies a conserved origin tethering factor in Actinobacteria
In eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells the establishment and maintenance of cell polarity is essential for numerous biological processes. In some bacterial species, the chromosome origins have beenExpand

The lipid II flippase RodA determines morphology and growth in Corynebacterium glutamicum
Lipid II flippases play an essential role in cell growth and the maintenance of cell shape in many rod‐shaped bacteria. The putative lipid II flippase RodA is an integral membrane protein and memberExpand

Chromosome Segregation Impacts on Cell Growth and Division Site Selection in Corynebacterium glutamicum
Spatial and temporal regulation of bacterial cell division is imperative for the production of viable offspring. In many rod-shaped bacteria, regulatory systems such as the Min system and nucleoidExpand

Polymerization Dynamics of the Prophage-Encoded Actin-Like Protein AlpC Is Influenced by the DNA-Binding Adapter AlpA
The Corynebacterium glutamicum ATCC 13032 prophage CGP3 encodes an actin-like protein, AlpC that was shown to be involved in viral DNA transport and efficient viral DNA replication. AlpC binds to anExpand
