Division inhibition caused by the minCD gene products of Escherichia coli is suppressed specifically at mid-cell by MinE protein expressed at physiological levels. Excess MinE allows division to take place also at the poles, leading to a minicell-forming (Min-) phenotype. In order to investigate the basis of this topological specificity, we have analysed the ability of truncated derivatives of MinE to suppress either minCD-dependent division inhibition in a chromosomal delta(minB) background… CONTINUE READING
