The partitioning of chromosomes into daughter cells during the division of Escherichia coli is non-random. As a result, the chromosome containing the older template DNA strand has a higher probability of segregating toward the old cell pole than toward the new cell pole. The numerical value of this probability is a function of the incubation temperature. It is shown here that a recent model for explaining the physiological basis for non-random chromosome segregation also explains the… Expand
