The Escherichia coli SMC complex, MukBEF, shapes nucleoid organization independently of DNA replication.

Abstract:

SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) complexes function ubiquitously in organizing and maintaining chromosomes. Functional fluorescent derivatives of the Escherichia coli SMC complex, MukBEF, form foci that associate with the replication origin region (ori). MukBEF impairment results in mispositioning of ori and other loci in steady-state cells. These observations led to an earlier proposal that MukBEF positions new replicated sister oris. We show here that MukBEF generates and maintai...
