DNA replication was studied in a dnaA(Ts) strain containing a plasmid with the dnaA+ gene under plac control. At 42 degrees C, initiation of DNA replication was totally dependent upon the gratuitous inducer isopropyl beta-D-thiogalactopyranoside (IPTG). Flow cytometric measurements showed that at 13% induction of the lac promoter the growth rate, cell size,(More)
BACKGROUND Initiation of chromosome replication in E. coli requires the DnaA and DnaC proteins and conditionally-lethal dnaA and dnaC mutants are often used to synchronize cell populations. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS DNA microarrays were used to measure mRNA steady-state levels in initiation-deficient dnaA46 and dnaC2 bacteria at permissive and(More)
In slow-growing Escherichia coli cells the chromosome is organized with its left (L) and right (R) arms lying separated in opposite halves of the nucleoid and with the origin (O) in-between, giving the pattern L-O-R. During replication one of the arms has to pass the other to obtain the same organization in the daughter cells: L-O-R L-O-R. To determine the(More)
We describe YGFP, a slow bleaching green fluorescent protein (GFP) with unique spectral properties. YGFP is derived from an Escherichia coli codon-optimized synthetic gfp mutant 2 derivative. In addition to the GFP-mut 2 changes, it also carries S202F and T203I substitutions. YGFP can be used as a substitute for yellow fluorescent protein (YFP) in(More)
