PFAM accession number:PF12327
Interpro abstract (IPR024757):

The FtsZ family of proteins are involved in polymer formation. 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 is a GTPase, like tubulin [ (PUBMED:9628483) ]. FtsZ can polymerise into tubes, sheets, and rings in vitro and is ubiquitous in eubacteria and archaea [ (PUBMED:9428770) ].

This entry represents a domain of FtsZ. In most FtsZ proteins is found in the C terminus, except in some alphaproteobacteria proteins where there is an extension C-terminal domain .

This is a PFAM domain. For full annotation and more information, please see the PFAM entry FtsZ_C
