Oscillation of the Min proteins is a key regulator of the division plane in many bacteria including the model organism E. coli. The coupled oscillation of these proteins between the ends of the cell restricts the formation of the Z ring, an essential cytoskeletal element that serves as a scaffold for the cytokinesis machinery, to a narrow region at midcell. The oscillation was discovered following the fusion of the Min proteins to green fluorescent protein. Importantly, the Min system is… CONTINUE READING
