ZipA_CZipA, C-terminal domain (FtsZ-binding)
|SMART accession number:||SM00771
||C-terminal domain of ZipA, a component of cell division in E.coli. It interacts with the FtsZ protein in one of the initial steps of septum formation. The structure of this domain is composed of three alpha-helices and a beta-sheet consisting of six antiparallel beta-strands.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR007449):
||This entry represents the ZipA C-terminal domain. ZipA is an essential cell division protein involved in septum formation [(PUBMED:9008158), (PUBMED:9864327)]. Its C-terminal domain binds FtsZ, a major component of the bacterial septal ring [(PUBMED:10209756)]. The structure of this domain is an alpha-beta fold with three alpha helices and a beta sheet of six antiparallel beta strands. The major loops protruding from the beta sheet surface are thought to form a binding site for FtsZ [(PUBMED:10924108)].
|GO process:||barrier septum assembly (GO:0000917)|
|GO component:||integral to membrane (GO:0016021)|
