Gene name
noc

Comments [?]

Function Effects nucleoid occlusion by binding relatively nonspecifically to DNA and preventing the assembly of the division machinery in the vicinity of the nucleoid, especially under conditions that disturb the cell cycle. It helps to coordinate cell division and chromosome segregation by preventing the formation of the Z ring through the nucleoid, which would cause chromosome breakage (By similarity).
Subcellular location Cytoplasm, nucleoid (By similarity).
Similarity Belongs to the ParB family.
