Snapshot of Min protein locations in simulated filamentous (ftsZ-), wild-type and spherical (rodA-) Escherichia coli (see Fange and Elf). A stochastic reaction–diffusion model is used to account for the spatiotemporal Min oscillations in phenotypes for which a mean-field approach fails. Cytosolic proteins MinE (purple), MinDATP (green), and MinDADP( yellow) are seen in the upper part of the cells, and the membrane-bound species MinD (red) and MinDE (blue) are seen on the surface of the lower part of the cells.
