A circadian clock coordinates physiology and behavior in diverse groups of living organisms. Another major cyclic cellular event, the cell cycle, is regulated by the circadian clock in the few cases where linkage of these cycles has been studied. In the cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus, the circadian clock gates cell division by an unknown mechanism. Using time-lapse microscopy, we confirm the gating of cell division in the wild type, and demonstrate the regulation of cytokinesis by key… CONTINUE READING
