FUNCTIONCell 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.
SUBUNITHomodimer. Interacts with FtsZ.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCytoplasm. Note=Localizes to the division site, in a FtsZ-dependent manner.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the SepF family.
