      Developmental biology of Streptomyces from the perspective of 100 actinobacterial genome sequences (pages 345–379)

      Govind Chandra and Keith F. Chater

      Version of Record online: 19 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12047

      The morphological complexity of many actinomycetes can be traced to special features of their ancient simple actinobacterial progenitors and to the later acquisition of various extracellular proteins and additional regulatory components.

      The bacterial chromosome: architecture and action of bacterial SMC and SMC-like complexes (pages 380–392)

      Sophie Nolivos and David Sherratt

      Version of Record online: 18 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12045

      By reviewing the properties of SMC complexes in all three domains of life, we assess their likely common biochemical mechanism of action and propose how this might relate to the functions of bacterial SMC complexes in chromosome segregation and chromosome organization.

      Adaptations of anaerobic archaea to life under extreme energy limitation (pages 449–472)

      Florian Mayer and Volker Müller

      Version of Record online: 5 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12043

      This review discusses, from a thermodynamic point of view, the minimal energy required to sustain life by a chemiosmotic process, describes chemiosmotic energy coupling mechanisms in selected examples of anaerobic archaea that live under extreme energy limitation, focuses on structural adaptations of the ATP synthase, and culminates in the summary of mechanisms that allow growth under these conditions.

      Peptide pheromone signaling in Streptococcus and Enterococcus (pages 473–492)

      Laura C. Cook and Michael J. Federle

      This report summarizes current knowledge on peptide pheromones found in the genera Streptococcus and Enterococcus and reviews the four major categories of gram-positive bacterial signaling pathways.

      Regulated proteolysis in bacterial development (pages 493–522)

      Anna Konovalova, Lotte Søgaard-Andersen and Lee Kroos

      Version of Record online: 19 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12050

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Bacteria use regulated proteolysis to destroy or activate regulatory proteins, and to produce signals, in order to temporally and spatially control processes of morphological development.
