Reconstituting geometry-modulated protein patterns in membrane compartments.

Abstract

The MinCDE protein system from Escherichia coli has become one of the most striking paradigms of protein self-organization and biological pattern formation. The whole set of Min proteins is functionally active to position the divisome machinery by inhibiting Z ring assembly away from mid-cell. This is accomplished by an oscillation behavior between the cell… (More)
