Bacterial cytokinesis requires the coordinated assembly of a complex of proteins, collectively known as the divisome, at the incipient division site. DivIB/FtsQ is a conserved component of the divisome in bacteria with cell walls, suggesting that it plays a role in synthesis and/or remodeling of septal peptidoglycan. We demonstrate that the extracytoplasmic region of DivIB comprises three discrete domains that we designate alpha, beta, and gamma from the N to C terminus. The alpha-domain is… CONTINUE READING
