Inhibition of cell division initiation by an imbalance in the ratio of FtsA to FtsZ.

By S J Dewar, K J Begg and W D Donachie


Elevated levels of FtsA protein block cell division at a very early stage, similar to that caused by inhibition of the action of FtsZ. In contrast, overexpression of FtsA and FtsZ together does not block division. A specific ratio of FtsA to FtsZ protein, therefore, is required for cell division
