Cell division protein FtsZ 1
UniProtKB accession: Q57816
Grouped By: Matching UniProtKB accession
UniProtKB description: Essential cell division protein that forms a contractile ring structure (Z ring) at the future cell division site. The regulation of the ring assembly controls the timing and the location of cell division. One of the functions of the FtsZ ring is to recruit other cell division proteins to the septum to produce a new cell wall between the dividing cells. Binds GTP and shows GTPase activity.
