Some Aspects of the Regulation of DNA Replication in Escherichia coli

  • Karl G. Lark
Part of the Biological Regulation and Development book series (BRD, volume 1)

Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to discuss recent results in the field of DNA replication which provide insight into a regulatory mechanism of an unusual type: regulation by protein-protein interaction. DNA replication represents one example of this regulatory mechanism. However, regulation of this type may govern many other aspects of cell division and differentiation.
