Electron cryotomography of dividing Gram-negative bacterial cells. a Representative tomographic slices through dividing Caulobacter crescentus (left) and Escherichia coli cells (right). Arrows point to the S-layer (SL), outer membrane (OM), peptidoglycan (PG), and inner membrane (IM). Scale bars indicate 100 nm. b Calculation of the distance D between the two membranes shows that it is maintained throughout the invagination site at the midcell. Error bars indicate standard deviation
