We submitted a new preprint to bioRxiv, read it here:
- Ambroise Lambert, Aster Vanhecke, Anna Archetti, Seamus Holden, Felix Schaber, Zachary Pincus, Michael T Laub, Erin D Goley, Suliana Manley, Constriction rate modulation can drive cell size control and homeostasis in C. crescentus. bioRxiv doi:10.1101/266817 (2018).
Ambroise Lambert, a post-doc in the lab of Suliana Manley, EPFL, led a really exciting peace of work where we showed that Caulobacter cresentus cells use modulation of their constriction rate as a hitherto unappreciated means of cell size control. Ie, one of the ways in which Caulobacter cells control their size is by controlling how fast they divide.
