Sporulation in Bacillus subtilis begins with an asymmetric cell division producing two genetically identical cells with different fates. SpoIIE is a membrane protein that localizes to the polar cell division sites where it causes FtsZ to relocate from mid-cell to form polar Z-rings. Following polar septation, SpoIIE establishes compartment-specific gene(More)
SpoIIE is a dual function protein that plays important roles during sporulation in Bacillus subtilis. It binds to the tubulin-like protein FtsZ causing the cell division septum to relocate from mid-cell to the cell pole, and it dephosphorylates SpoIIAA phosphate leading to establishment of differential gene expression in the two compartments following the(More)
—The narrow-V ship wake in a radar image is typically a bright V-shaped or wedge-like return with an angle of a few degrees. It is often seen in images from satellite-borne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), especially when the ship is traveling in a direction close to the SAR track and when the wind is light. Though explanation for the narrow-V wake exists(More)
