Disease relevance of ftsK


High impact information on ftsK

  • The expression of ftsK increased as part of the SOS response, and increased expression of ftsK conferred increased resistance to DNA damage [1].
  • Rather, this mutation acts as a general suppressor of division defects, which include deletions of the normally essential genes zipA and ftsK and mutations in FtsQ that affect both localization and recruitment [3].
  • The SOS promoter dinH is essential for ftsK transcription during cell division [4].
