Comments [?]

Function Cell division protein that is involved in the assembly of the Z ring. May serve as a membrane anchor for the Z ring.
Subunit Self-interacts. Interacts with FtsZ.
case defined <Property:Membrane> and <Property:Membrane=2>
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Localizes to the Z ring in an FtsZ-dependent manner. Targeted to the membrane through a conserved C-terminal amphiphatic helix.
