  1. Bisson Filho A, Hsu Y, Squyres G, Kuru E, Wu F, Jukes C, et al. Treadmilling by FtsZ filaments drives peptidoglycan synthesis and bacterial cell division. Science. 2017;355:739-743 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, FtsZ treadmilling guides the progressive insertion of new cell wall by building increasingly smaller concentric rings of peptidoglycan to divide the cell. ..
  2. Eun Y, Kapoor M, Hussain S, Garner E. Bacterial Filament Systems: Toward Understanding Their Emergent Behavior and Cellular Functions. J Biol Chem. 2015;290:17181-9 pubmed publisher
    ..We highlight how comparing the in vivo dynamics of the filaments with those measured in vitro has provided insight into the regulation, emergent behavior, and cellular functions of these polymeric systems. ..

    ..Here, we present a theoretical framework that explains how these larger fluctuations in archaeal cell cycle events contribute to cell size variability and control. ..
