Propagated annotation [?]

Identifier, protein and gene names [?]

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

Comments [?]

FUNCTIONForms 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.
SUBUNITForms polymers.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCytoplasm. Note=Membrane-associated.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the FtsA/MreB family.
