Bacterial physiology: DynAmic membrane fusion


family of GTPases are known to be mediators of membrane remodelling processes in eukaryotic cells. Many bacterial genomes also contain genes encoding dynamin-like proteins, but their function has remained unclear. Writing in Molecular Microbiology, Bürmann et al. now show that DynA, a dynamin-like protein found in Bacillus subtilis, localizes to the septum… (More)
