FtsZ is an essential protein for bacterial cell division, where it forms the cytoskeletal scaffold and may generate the constriction force. We have found previously that some mutant and foreign FtsZ that do not complement an ftsZ null can function for cell division in E. coli upon acquisition of a suppressor mutation somewhere in the genome. We have now… CONTINUE READING
