General annotation
FunctionEssential for cell division. It is thought that the intracellular concentration of FTSZ protein is critical for productive septum formation in mycobacteria.
ProductCell division protein FtsZ
CommentsRv2150c, (MTCY270.18), len: 379 aa. FtsZ, cell division protein (see Dziadek et al., 2002). Contains FtsZ protein signature 2 (PS01135). FASTA best: FTSZ_STRCO P45500 cell division protein FtsZ (399 aa) opt: 1674, E(): 0; (77.3% identity in 339 aa overlap). FtsW|Rv2154c interacts with PbpB|Rv2163c and FtsZ|RvRv2150c (See Datta et al., 2006).
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
ProteomicsIdentified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). Translational start site supported by proteomics data (See Kelkar et al., 2011).
TranscriptomicsmRNA identified by Northern blotting analysis; maximal level of transcription at log-phase growth (see Hu et al., 1999).
MutantEssential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
