filamentation


Also found in: Wikipedia.

filamentation

The continued elongation of bacillary bacteria without septum formation (division), which occurs in response to various stressors (e.g., DNA damage, antibiotics in the culture medium or inhibition of replication) that trigger the SOS response system.

In principle they might either be related to the additional (weak) oscillation of an undesired higher transverse mode (i.e., #4 with five intensity maxima here) or the occurrence of filamentation [40-45].
NEDD9 (neural precursor cell-expressed developmentally downregulated protein 9) also known as HEF1 (human enhancer of filamentation 1) is a cytoskeletal protein which is considered a signaling mediator of various cellular events including cell adhesion, cell cycle regulation, apoptosis, and tumorigenesis [5].
