Comments [?]

Function Involved in chromosome condensation, segregation and cell cycle progression. May participate in facilitating chromosome segregation by condensation DNA from both sides of a centrally located replisome during cell division. Probably acts via its interaction with MukB and MukF.
Subunit Interacts, and probably forms a ternary complex, with MukF and MukB. The complex formation is stimulated by calcium or magnesium.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm, nucleoid. Note=Restricted to the nucleoid region.
Similarity Belongs to the MukE family.
