FtsZ, the prokaryotic homologue of tubulin, is an essential cell division protein. In the cell, it localizes at the center, forming a ring that constricts during division. In vitro, it binds and hydrolyzes GTP and polymerizes in a GTP-dependent manner. We have used atomic force microscopy to study the structure and dynamics of FtsZ polymer assembly on a… (More)
