Binary fission 

G1 / B cell peroid = cell growth 

C period = chromosome replication - 40 mins 

D period = septum formation and cell division - 20 mins 

division mechanisms 

division is initiated by Ftz protein 

it acts as a marker in cell to gather and form the Z ring 

it recruits other division proteins 

Ftz protein 

knows where midcell is 

MinCDE system positions septum in midcell then builds up and is broken down in polar parts of cell
