Dynamic Remodeling of the Magnetosome Membrane Is Triggered by the Initiation of Biomineralization

Abstract

UNLABELLED Magnetotactic bacteria produce chains of membrane-bound organelles that direct the biomineralization of magnetic nanoparticles. These magnetosome compartments are a model for studying the biogenesis and subcellular organization of bacterial organelles. Previous studies have suggested that discrete gene products build and assemble magnetosomes in… (More)
