Rapid and sequential movement of individual chromosomal loci to specific subcellular locations during bacterial DNA replication.


The chromosomal origin and terminus of replication are precisely localized in bacterial cells. We examined the cellular position of 112 individual loci that are dispersed over the circular Caulobacter crescentus chromosome and found that in living cells each locus has a specific subcellular address and that these loci are arrayed in linear order along the… (More)
