Cell division protein SepF (IPR023052)

Short name: Cell_div_SepF

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry represents a cell division protein, designated SepF, which is conserved in Gram-positive bacteria. SepF accumulates at the cell division site in an FtsZ-dependent manner and is required for proper septum formation [PMID: 16420366]. Mutants are viable but the formation of the septum is much slower and occurs with a very abnormal morphology.
