Two-component Signaling Systems and Cell Cycle Control in Caulobacter Crescentus

Erin B Purcell et al. Adv Exp Med Biol. .

Abstract

Recent work on the regulation ofprokaryotic growth and development by two-component systems (TCS) has revealed unsuspected levels of complexity. In the dimorphic freshwater bacterium Caulobacter crescentus, TCS provide stringent temporal and spatial control of cellular development and cell-cycle progression. While the environmental signals modulating TCS regulatory networks are largely unknown, the components of the network and their interactions with each other are increasingly well-defined. Here, we present an overview of TCS regulation of cell-cycle control in C. crescentus.
