We performed comparative and mutational analyses to define more comprehensively the repertoire of genes involved in cyanobacterial cell division. Genes ftsE, ftsI, ftsQ, ftsW, and (previously recognized) ftsZ, minC, minD, minE and sulA were identified as homologues of cell division genes of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Transposon mutagenesis of Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 identified five additional genes, cdv1, cdv2, cdv3, ftn6 and cikA, involved in cell division. cdv1 encodes… CONTINUE READING
