Tubulin_C

Tubulin/FtsZ family, C-terminal domain
Tubulin_C
SMART accession number:SM00865
Description: This domain is found in the tubulin alpha, beta and gamma chains, as well as the bacterial FtsZ family of proteins. These proteins are GTPases and are involved in polymer formation. Tubulin is the major component of microtubules, while FtsZ is the polymer-forming protein of bacterial cell division, it is part of a ring in the middle of the dividing cell that is required for constriction of cell membrane and cell envelope to yield two daughter cells. FtsZ can polymerise into tubes, sheets, and rings in vitro and is ubiquitous in bacteria and archaea. This is the C-terminal domain.
