New genes with old modus operandi. The connection between supercoiling and partitioning of DNA in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

The process of partitioning bacterial sister chromosomes into daughter cells seems to be distinct from chromatid segregation during eukaryotic mitosis. In Escherichia coli, partitioning starts soon after initiation of replication, when the two newly replicated oriCs move from the cell centre to quarter positions within the cell. As replication proceeds… (More)
