Example text

An E. coli mutant completely lacking PE propagates as long multinucleated filamentous cells. FtsZ and other early cell division proteins are still recruited to the division sites between nucleoids, however they often assemble in aberrant spiral rather than ring structures whose ability to undergo constriction is strongly inhibited [20]. 2). On the other hand, the neutral non-bilayer-forming lipid MGlcDG can substitute for PE in cell division (M. Wikström, 2004), suggesting that common properties of these two lipids, such as the ability to form non-bilayer structures and dilution of negative charge, are important for cell division [1].

The hydrogen bonding properties of the glycosphingolipids with themselves and with the constituents of the PI glycan-linked proteins stabilize the complexes. Finally, the planar shape of cholesterol favors its intercalation parallel to the ordered acyl chains of the raft lipids with its single hydroxyl group facing the surface. The stability of this structure appears to explain why it is not dissipated by detergent extraction. Lipid rafts appear to be a mechanism to compartmentalize processes on the cell surface by bringing together various receptor-mediated and signal transduction processes.

Coli, cell division is initiated after genome duplication by oligomerization of FtsZ, a prokaryotic analog of tubulin, in a ring structure midway between the poles of the cell. This protein ring is the scaffold that recruits a series of proteins to the division site that brings about constriction and eventually cell division. An E. coli mutant completely lacking PE propagates as long multinucleated filamentous cells. FtsZ and other early cell division proteins are still recruited to the division sites between nucleoids, however they often assemble in aberrant spiral rather than ring structures whose ability to undergo constriction is strongly inhibited [20].
