FUNCTIONEssential cell division protein that stabilizes the FtsZ protofilaments by cross-linking them and that serves as a cytoplasmic membrane anchor for the Z ring. Also required for the recruitment to the septal ring of downstream cell division proteins.
SUBUNITInteracts with FtsZ via their C-terminal domains.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCell inner membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Localizes to the Z ring in an FtsZ-dependent manner.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the ZipA family.
