Septum formation initiator FtsL/DivIC (IPR007060)

Short name: FtsL/DivIC

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


FtsL and DivIC (FtsB) are essential components of this division machinery [PMID: 21672257]. In Bacillus subtilis DivIC is necessary for both vegetative and sporulation septum formation [PMID: 8113187]. These proteins are mainly composed of an N-terminal coiled-coil. DivIB, DivIC and FtsL inter-depend on each other for stabilisation and localisation. The latter two form a heterodimer [PMID: 15659160].
