Function Early cell division protein that marks the future cell division site and supports proper FtsZ ring positioning.
Subunit Interacts with FtsZ.
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=In newborn cells, forms a ring positioned at mid-cell. Soon after cell division starts and the cells begin elongating, the ring splits into two rings that, as elongation proceeds, move along and mark the future division sites.
Similarity Belongs to the MapZ family.
