Disease relevance of sdiA


High impact information on sdiA

  • In addition, the sdiA gene product suppressed the action of other chromosomally encoded division inhibitors, induced minicell formation in wild type cells, and restored division activity to an ftsZ temperature-sensitive mutant grown under nonpermissive conditions [2].
  • The sdiA gene product is the first factor thus far identified that specifically regulates expression of this key group of cell division genes [2].
  • All of these properties were explained by the ability of the sdiA gene product specifically to increase transcription of the ftsQAZ gene cluster, resulting in an increase in cellular concentration of the FtsZ protein [2].
