The Min system in Escherichia coli directs division to the centre of the cell through pole-to-pole oscillations of the MinCDE proteins. We present a one-dimensional stochastic model of these oscillations which incorporates membrane polymerization of MinD into linear chains. This model reproduces much of the observed phenomenology of the Min system… CONTINUE READING
