Domain

ZipA, C-terminal FtsZ-binding domain (IPR007449)

Short name: ZipA_FtsZ-bd_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the ZipA C-terminal domain. ZipA is an essential cell division protein involved in septum formation [PMID: 9008158, PMID: 9864327]. Its C-terminal domain binds FtsZ, a major component of the bacterial septal ring [PMID: 10209756]. The structure of this domain is an alpha-beta fold with three alpha helices and a beta sheet of six antiparallel beta strands. The major loops protruding from the beta sheet surface are thought to form a binding site for FtsZ [PMID: 10924108].
