Bacterial chromosome replication is tightly regulated at the initiation stage to coordinate with mass increase. Together with chromosome partition at cell division, this regulation mechanism ensures the proper number of chromosomes in daughter cells at any growth rate. Therefore, elucidation of this regulation mechanism is important for understanding the bacterial cell cycle. Despite much effort in Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis for many years, the mechanism remains to be completely… CONTINUE READING
