The bacterial actin homolog, MreB, forms helical cables within the cell that are required for maintenance of a rod shape. These helical structures are thought to be involved in the spatial organization of cell wall (peptidoglycan) synthesizing complexes of penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). Here, we examined the role of the MreC cell shape protein in this process in Caulobacter crescentus. Subcellular fractionation experiments showed that MreC is a periplasmic protein and, as assayed by… CONTINUE READING
