|UniProt annotation for FTSB_ECOLI » Cell division protein FtsB|
|FUNCTION: Essential cell division protein. May link together the upstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly cytoplasmic, with the downstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly periplasmic. SUBUNIT: Part of a complex composed of FtsB, FtsL and FtsQ. The complex can be formed before its localization to the division site. This tripartite complex can be divided further into a subcomplex of FtsB and FtsL, which forms in the absence of FtsQ. Interacts also with FtsI and FtsN. DOMAIN: The transmembrane segment and the membrane-proximal periplasmic region, which forms a coiled-coil structure, are required for interaction with FtsL and recruitment of downstream division proteins. The C-terminal region is required for interaction with FtsQ, but is not required for recruitment of the downstream division protein FtsI. Contains a leucine zipper-like (LZ) motif, which is required for optimal interaction with FtsL. MISCELLANEOUS: The C-terminal domain of FtsB is degraded in the absence of either FtsL or FtsQ.|
