Abstract

Substantial progress has recently been made in the understanding of chromosome partitioning and cytokinesis in bacteria. The biochemical properties of some key protein components involved in these processes are beginning to emerge. New evidence supports the recently developed notion that, in prokaryotic cells, basic cell biological processes rely on the activity of previously unidentified cytoskeletal-like elements.
