Cell division coordinator CpoB (IPR034706)

Short name: CpoB

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



CpoB coordinates the complexes involved in septal peptidoglycan synthesis (PBP1B-LpoB complex) and outer membrane constriction (Tol system). This coordination contributes to maintain the integrity of the cell envelope during division. CpoB localizes to the septum concurrent with PBP1B-LpoB and Tol at the onset of constriction and interacts with both complexes, regulating PBP1B activity in response to Tol energy state [PMID: 25951518].
