Comments [?]

Function Activator of cell division through the inhibition of FtsZ GTPase activity, therefore promoting FtsZ assembly into bundles of protofilaments necessary for the formation of the division Z ring. It is recruited early at mid-cell but it is not essential for cell division (By similarity).
Subunit Homodimer. Interacts with FtsZ (By similarity).
Subcellular location Cytoplasm (By similarity). Note=Localizes at mid-cell. In sporulating cells, localizes near the cell poles (By similarity).
Similarity Belongs to the ZapA family. Type 2 subfamily.
