FtsACell division protein FtsA
|SMART accession number:||SM00842|
|Description:||FtsA is essential for bacterial cell division, and co-localizes to the septal ring with FtsZ. It has been suggested that the interaction of FtsA-FtsZ has arisen through coevolution in different bacterial strains (PUBMED:9352931).|
|Interpro abstract (IPR003494):|
FtsA is essential for bacterial cell division, and co-localises to the septal ring with FtsZ. The SHS2 domain is inserted into the RNAseH fold of FtsA [(PUBMED:15281131)], and is involved in protein-protein interaction [(PUBMED:9352931)].
|GO process:||cell cycle (GO:0007049)|
