SpoIIIE/FtsK are membrane-anchored, ATP-fuelled, directional motors responsible for chromosomal segregation in bacteria. Directionality in these motors is governed by interactions between specialized sequence-recognition modules (SpoIIIE-γ/FtsK-γ) and highly skewed chromosomal sequences (SRS/KOPS). Using a new combination of ensemble and single-molecule methods, we dissect the series of steps required for SRS localization and motor activation. First, we demonstrate that SpoIIIE/DNA associatio...Expand abstract
