The ATPase activity of MinD is required for it to oscillate between the ends of the cell and spatially regulate cell division in Escherichia coli. It is a member of a functionally diverse subgroup of ATPases which are involved in activities ranging from nitrogen fixation (NifH) to plasmid segregation (ParA). All members of the subgroup have a deviant Walker A motif which contains a conserved 'signature' lysine that characterizes this subgroup. In the NifH homodimer the signature lysines make… CONTINUE READING
