Macromolecular crowding in Rhodobacter sphaeroides

Abstract:

Macromolecular crowding is thought to have an important role in protein dynamics and molecular diffusion in bacteria. However, the dynamic and heterogeneous nature of the cytoplasm makes it challenging to study and test the significance of crowding in live cells. Previous studies have used diffusion coefficient of protein to estimate excluded volume in osmotically stressed or energy depleted cells, but the effects of crowding in unperturbed cells are unclear. The alphaproteobacterium Rhodo...
