Descriptions


    "The DicF RNA acts to inhibit cell division (Bouche F,1989). DicF causes inhibition of the formation of the constriction and the separation of the replicated chromosomes into the daughter nucleoids (Tetart F,1992). DicF RNA interferes with FtsZ mRNA translation (Tetart F,1992); DicF may bind to and occlude the ribosome binding site on the FtsZ mRNA (Tetart F,1992). The DicF-mediated delay in nucleoid segregation is suppressed by FtsZ overproduction (Tetart F,1992). The DicF-mediated decrease in FtsZ abundance and activity is suppressed by an.....
