FtsA

Cell division protein FtsA
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)].
