In this review we describe proteins and supermolecular structures which take part in the division of bacterial cells. FtsZ, a eukaryotic tubulin homolog is a key cell division protein in most prokaryotes.

FtsZ and bacterial cell division

Cell division in bacteria is mediated by the tubulin-like protein FtsZ, which assembles into a structure known as the Z ring at the future site of cytokinesis. We report the discovery of a Z-ring-associated protein in Bacillus subtilis called ZapA. ZapA was found to colocalize with the Z ring in vivo and was capable of binding to FtsZ and stimulating the formation of higher-order assemblies of the cytokinetic protein in vitro. The absence of ZapA alone did not impair cell viability, but the absence of ZapA in combination with the absence of a second, dispensable division protein EzrA caused a severe block in cytokinesis. Conversely, overproduction of ZapA reversed the toxicity of excess levels of the division inhibitor MinD. In toto, the evidence indicates that ZapA is part of the cytokinetic machinery of the cell and acts by promoting Z-ring formation.

Genes involved in cell division in mycoplasmas. Send Correspondence to. Bacterial cell division has been studied mainly in model systems such as Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis , where it is described as a complex process with the participation of a group of proteins which assemble into a multiprotein complex called the septal ring. Mycoplasmas are cell wall-less bacteria presenting a reduced genome. Thus, it was important to compare their genomes to analyze putative genes involved in cell division processes. The division and cell wall dcw cluster, which in E.

Bacteria possess a repertoire of versatile protein kinases modulating diverse aspects of their physiology by phosphorylating proteins on various amino acids including histidine, cysteine, aspartic acid, arginine, serine, threonine and tyrosine. Over the last decade, evidence has been accumulating that these protein kinases are involved in cell division, morphogenesis and developmental processes in Firmicutes and Actinobacteria. However, observations differ from one species to another suggesting that a general mechanism of activation of their kinase activity is unlikely and that species-specific regulation of cell division is at play. In eukaryotic organisms, protein phosphorylation essentially occurs on serine, threonine and tyrosine residues and is catalyzed by a particular set of enzymes related by virtue of their kinase domain that contains 12 conserved subdomains folding into a common catalytic core structure Hanks and Hunter In bacteria, the situation is quite different with a diverse repertoire of protein kinases, which phosphorylate proteins on histidine, cysteine, aspartic acid, arginine, serine, threonine and tyrosine residues. This is notably the case for histidine kinases that were the first protein kinases to be identified and characterized in bacteria and that belong to the well-known two-component systems, the hallmark of bacterial signaling Casino, Rubio and Marina When it comes to serine phosphorylation, bacteria were initially found to produce an atypical type of proteins that catalyzes both serine phosphorylation and dephosphorylation.

Cell cycle

The cell cycle , or cell-division cycle , is the series of events that take place in a cell that cause it to divide into two daughter cells. These events include the duplication of its DNA DNA replication and some of its organelles , and subsequently the partitioning of its cytoplasm and other components into two daughter cells in a process called cell division. In cells with nuclei eukaryotes , i. During interphase, the cell grows, accumulating nutrients needed for mitosis, and replicates its DNA and some of its organelles. During the mitotic phase, the replicated chromosomes, organelles, and cytoplasm separate into two new daughter cells.

Berberine is a plant alkaloid that is widely used as an anti-infective in traditional medicine. Escherichia coli exposed to berberine form filaments, suggesting an antibacterial mechanism that involves inhibition of cell division. Also, there is biochemical evidence for berberine inhibition of the cell division protein FtsZ. Here we aimed to assess possible berberine mechanism s of action in growing bacteria using genetics tools. Also, cell filamentation was observed in an SOS-negative E. To test whether berberine inhibits FtsZ, we assessed its effects on formation of the cell division Z-rings, and observed a dramatic reduction in Z-rings in the presence of berberine.

Но вышло. Пройдя помещение шифровалки и зайдя в лабораторию систем безопасности, он сразу почувствовал что-то неладное. Компьютер, который постоянно отслеживал работу ТРАНСТЕКСТА, оказался выключен, вокруг не было ни души. - Эй! - крикнул Чатрукьян. Ответа не последовало.

Это избирательный цикл. Иными словами, это червь со своими пристрастиями. Бринкерхофф открыл рот, собираясь что-то сказать, но Фонтейн движением руки заставил его замолчать. - Самое разрушительное последствие - полное уничтожение всего банка данных, - продолжал Джабба, - но этот червь посложнее.

Хейл наклонил голову набок, явно заинтригованный такой скрытностью. И, как бы желая обратить все в игру, сделал еще один шаг. Но он не был готов к тому, что произошло в следующее мгновение. Сохраняя ледяное спокойствие, Сьюзан ткнула указательным пальцем в твердокаменную грудь Хейла и заставила его остановиться. Хейл в шоке отпрянул, поняв, что она не шутит: Сьюзан Флетчер никогда еще до него не дотрагивалась, даже руки не коснулась.

 Ну, если вы имеете в виду и диагностику, то времени уходило. - Насколько .
