Fig. 1

The population oscillation of CtrAp during Caulobacter crescentus cell cycle. Left figure shows the simulation result of deterministic model and the right figure shows the stochastic simulation result. In the swamer stage (t=030min), the CtrA is phosphorylated and at high population level state, which inhibits the initiation of chromosome replication. During swarmer-to-stalked transition (t=3050min), the CtrAp population quickly switch to low state, allowing the consequent initiation of chromosome replication in the stalked stage
