Abstract

In contrast to rod-shaped bacteria, little is known about chromosomal maintenance and segregation in the spherical Staphylococcus aureus. The analysis of chromosomal segregation in smc (structural maintenance of chromosomes) and spoIIIE single and double mutants unravels differences in the chromosome dynamics in the spherical staphylococcal cells compared to the model in rods.
