1. The membrane domain of SpoIIIE is required for membrane fusion during Bacillus subtilis sporulation.

    Journal of Bacteriology 185(6):2005 (2003) PMID 12618465 PMCID PMC150122

    During Bacillus subtilis sporulation, SpoIIIE is required for both postseptational chromosome segregation and membrane fusion after engulfment. Here we demonstrate that SpoIIIE must be present in the mother cell to promote membrane fusion and that the N-terminal membrane-spanning segments consti...

  3. MinCD-dependent regulation of the polarity of SpoIIIE assembly and DNA transfer.

    EMBO Journal 21(22):6267 (2002) PMID 12426398 PMCID PMC137189

    During Bacillus subtilis sporulation, the SpoIIIE DNA translocase moves a trapped chromosome across the sporulation septum into the forespore. The direction of DNA translocation is controlled by the specific assembly of SpoIIIE in the mother cell and subsequent export of DNA into the forespore. ...

  5. Partitioning of chromosomal DNA during establishment of cellular asymmetry in Bacillus subtilis.

    Journal of Bacteriology 184(6):1743 (2002) PMID 11872726 PMCID PMC134875

    The switch from symmetric to asymmetric cell division is a key feature of development in many organisms, including Bacillus subtilis sporulation. Here we demonstrate that, prior to the onset of asymmetric cell division, the B. subtilis chromosome is partitioned into two unequally sized domains, ...

  7. Role of cell-specific SpoIIIE assembly in polarity of DNA transfer.

    Science 295(5552):137 (2002) PMID 11778051 PMCID PMC2885158

    SpoIIIE mediates postseptational chromosome partitioning in Bacillus subtilis, but the mechanism controlling the direction of DNA transfer remains obscure. Here, we demonstrated that SpoIIIE acts as a DNA exporter: When SpoIIIE was synthesized in the larger of the two cells necessary for sporula...
