Mycobacterial growth adaptations to the host environment.

Logsdon, Michelle.


  • Asymmetric elongation and division in mycobacteria give rise to increased variability in cell size compared to model bacteria such as E. coli and B. subtilis. Their innate asymmetry creates unequal birth sizes and growth rates for daughter cells with each division, generating phenotypically heterogeneous populations that may serve as a bet-hedging mechanism under host stress. Cell size ... read more
