In this report, we have investigated cell division after inhibition of initiation of chromosome replication in Escherichia coli. In a culture grown to the stationary phase, cells containing more than one chromosome were able to divide some time after restart of growth, under conditions not allowing initiation of chromosome replication. This shows that there is no requirement for cell division to take place within a certain time after initiation of chromosome replication. Continued growth… CONTINUE READING
