In the recent decade, our view on the organization of the bacterial cell has been revolutionized by the identification of cytoskeletal elements. Most bacterial species have structural homologs of actin and tubulin that assemble into dynamic, filamentous structures at precisely defined sub-cellular locations. The essential cell division protein FtsZ forms a dynamic ring at mid-cell and is similar in its structure to tubulin. Proteins of the MreB family, which are structural homologs of actin… CONTINUE READING
