Various events involving partitioning of sister chromosomes were precisely analyzed in asynchronously growing Escherichia coli cells in various conditions. To examine the cohesion between sister chromosomes, we analyzed living cells growing under various conditions for the number of the replication origin (oriC) copies by flow cytometry and the foci of oriC by fluorescence microscopy. The average number of the oriC foci per cell was significantly smaller than the number of oriC copies per cell… CONTINUE READING
