The earliest step in Escherichia coli cell division consists of the assembly of FtsZ protein into a proto-ring structure, tethered to the cytoplasmic membrane by FtsA and ZipA. The proto-ring then recruits additional cell division proteins to form the divisome. Previously we described an ftsZ allele, ftsZL169R , which maps to the side of the FtsZ subunit and confers resistance to FtsZ assembly inhibitory factors including Kil of bacteriophage λ. Here we further characterize this allele and its… CONTINUE READING
