Abstract

Remodeling of membranes by fission or fusion has been extensively studied in eukaryotes, but proteins directly responsible for mediating such events in bacteria have not been discovered. A recent report identified a protein in Bacillus subtilis that exploits an affinity for a specific lipid to drive membrane fission during sporulation.
