  • Bacterial cells contain a variety of structural filamentous proteins necessary for the spatial regulation of cell shape, cell division, and chromosome segregation, analogous to the eukaryotic cytoskeletal proteins. The molecular mechanisms by which these proteins function are beginning to be revealed, and these proteins show numerous three-dimensional structural features and biochemical properties similar to those of eukaryotic actin and tubulin, revealing their evolutionary relationship… CONTINUE READING
