Disease relevance of ftsK


High impact information on ftsK

  • 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 [2].
  • A mutation in a newly discovered Escherichia coli cell division gene, ftsK, causes a temperature-sensitive late-stage block in division but does not affect chromosome replication or segregation [1].
