DivIVA is involved in placement of the division septum and chromosome segregation in Bacillus subtilis and it plays important roles in cell division or morphogenesis in diverse Gram-positive bacteria. In Staphylococcus aureus, DivIVA is localized at the division septum, but it does not colocalize with the chromosomal origin of replication, as labeled with SpoOJ protein. Unexpectedly, a divIVA null mutant is not impaired in growth, nor is it affected in chromosome segregation or cell morphology.
