Comments [?]

Function Cell division protein that is part of the divisome complex and is recruited early to the Z-ring. Probably stimulates Z-ring formation, perhaps through the cross-linking of FtsZ protofilaments. Its function overlaps with FtsA (By similarity).
Subunit Homodimer. Interacts with FtsZ (By similarity).
Subcellular location Cytoplasm (By similarity). Note=Localizes to the division site, in a FtsZ-dependent manner (By similarity).
Similarity Belongs to the SepF family.
