In the rod-shaped bacterium Escherichia coli, selection of the cell centre as the division site involves pole-to-pole oscillations of the proteins MinC, MinD and MinE. This spatio-temporal pattern emerges from interactions among the Min proteins and with the cytoplasmic membrane. Combining experimental studies in vivo and in vitro together with theoretical… CONTINUE READING
