Model for the localization of AidB-YFP along B. abortus cell cycle. The PdhS-mCherry is labelling the old pole of B. abortus. AidB-YFP is therefore localized at the new pole, as suggested by Figure 2. In dividing cells, we hypothesize that AidB-YFP is first present at the young pole (the new pole that becomes old) and at the constriction site. This localization at the young pole would be lost afterwards, allowing the generation of two sibling cells with a unique pole of AidB-YFP. The new (n), young (y) and old (o) poles are labelled. In this model, the constriction region would be the preparation site for the new poles of the sibling cells.
