Fluorescence bleaching reveals asymmetric compartment formation prior to cell division in Caulobacter.

Abstract

Asymmetric cell division in Caulobacter crescentus yields daughter cells that have different cell fates. Compartmentalization of the predivisional cell is a critical event in the establishment of the differential distribution of regulatory factors that specify cell fate. To determine when during the cell cycle the cytoplasm is compartmentalized so that… (More)
