Cell division protein FtsA

Gene

ftsA

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Essential cell division protein that assists in the assembly of the Z ring (PubMed:11847116). May serve as the principal membrane anchor for the Z ring (PubMed:15752196). Also required for the recruitment to the septal ring of the downstream cell division proteins FtsK, FtsQ, FtsL, FtsI and FtsN (PubMed:9282742, PubMed:9495771, PubMed:9603865, PubMed:9882666, PubMed:10027987, PubMed:24750258). Binds ATP (PubMed:11053380).9 Publications

Similar proteinsi

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
