Identifier
MREB
Protein name
RecName: Full=Cell shape-determining protein MreB;
Gene name
mreB

Comments [?]

Function Forms membrane-associated dynamic filaments that are essential for cell shape determination. Acts by regulating cell wall synthesis and cell elongation, and thus cell shape. A feedback loop between cell geometry and MreB localization may maintain elongated cell shape by targeting cell wall growth to regions of negative cell wall curvature.
Subunit Forms polymers.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm. Note=Membrane-associated.
Similarity Belongs to the FtsA/MreB family.
