Identifier RACA
Protein name RecName: Full=Chromosome-anchoring protein RacA;
Gene name Name=racA;

Comments [?]

FUNCTIONRequired for the formation of axial filaments and for anchoring the origin regions at the cell poles in sporulating cells, thus ensuring proper chromosome segregation in the prespore. Binds in a dispersed manner throughout the chromosome but preferentially to sites clustered in the origin portion of the chromosome, causing condensation of the chromosome and its remodeling into an elongated, anchored structure.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCytoplasm. Note=Localizes to cell poles and nucleoid.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the RacA family.
