Escherichia fergusonii (strain ATCC 35469 / DSM 13698 / CDC 0568-73)
FAMILY
DESCRIPTION
Also known as SLMA_ESCF3, slmA. Required for nucleoid occlusion (NO) phenomenon, which prevents Z-ring formation and cell division over the nucleoid. Acts as a DNA-associated cell division inhibitor that binds simultaneously chromosomal DNA and FtsZ, and disrupts the assembly of FtsZ polymers. SlmA-DNA-binding sequences (SBS) are dispersed on non-Ter regions of the chromosome, preventing FtsZ polymerization at these regions. Homodimer. Interacts with FtsZ.
