Tubulin and its prokaryotic homologue FtsZ: a structural and functional comparison.

Abstract

Microtubules are one of the three primary constituents of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton and are constructed from the protein tubulin. FtsZ is a close structural homologue of tubulin within prokaryotes, and plays an important structural role during cell division. This article compares what is known about the structures that these two homologues are able to… (More)
