  • : Polar targeting of DivIVA in Bacillus subtilis is not directly dependent on FtsZ or PBP 2B

Abstract: DivIVA is involved in Bacillus subtilis cell division and is located at the cell poles. Previous experiments suggested that the cell division proteins FtsZ and PBP 2B are required for polar targeting of DivIVA. By using outgrowing spores, we show that DivIVA accumulates at the cell poles independent of the presence of FtsZ or PBP 2B.
