DivIB, DivIC and FtsL are bacterial proteins essential for cell division, which show interdependencies for their stabilities and localization. We have reconstituted in vitro a trimeric complex consisting of the recombinant extracellular domains of the three proteins from Streptococcus pneumoniae. The extracellular domain of DivIB was found to associate with a heterodimer of those of DivIC and FtsL. The heterodimerization of DivIC and FtsL was artificially constrained by fusion with interacting… CONTINUE READING
