The gene encoding FtZ was cloned from triangular disc-shaped extremely halophilic archaeon Haloarcula japonica strain TR-1. Nucleotide sequencing analysis of the possible ftsZ gene revealed that the structural gene consisted of an open reading frame of 1,182 nucleotides encoding 394 amino acids. The deduced amino acid sequence of the Ha. japonica FtsZ… CONTINUE READING
