    The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • transports the forespore chromosome across the [SW|sporulation ]septum [Pubmed|20516200]
  • translocates septum-entrapped DNA only when septum closure precedes complete segregation of chromosomes [Pubmed|19818024]
  • the two DNA translocases [protein|DF77B46666595E86081C5345C91E08F86DF9FAEE|SftA] and [protein|125325B485FBC60798EDA4B4BFB24C6FCBC4C513|SpoIIIE] synergistically affect chromosome dimer resolution presumably by positioning the dif sites in close proximity, before or after completion of cell division, respectively [Pubmed|21239579]
  • binds DNA sequences named SRS for SpoIIIE recognition sequence, GAGAAGGG [Pubmed|18391964]
  • Protein family

  • FtsK/SpoIIIE/SftA family (with [protein|DF77B46666595E86081C5345C91E08F86DF9FAEE|SftA], according to UniProt)
  • Paralogous protein(s)

  • [protein|DF77B46666595E86081C5345C91E08F86DF9FAEE|SftA]
  • [SW|Domains]

  • N-terminal transmembrane domain (4 helices) [Pubmed|24297254]
  • 134 aa linker [Pubmed|24297254]
  • 512 aa motor domain at the C-terminus [Pubmed|24297254]
  • [SW|FtsK domain] (aa 450-646) (according to UniProt)
  • Structure

  • [PDB|2IUT] (FtsK from ''Pseudomonas aeruginosa'', partial, 48% identity, complex with [protein|DF77B46666595E86081C5345C91E08F86DF9FAEE|SftA]) [Pubmed|16916635]
  • [SW|Localization]

  • free diffusion in the membrane, no enrichment at septa [pubmed|29439991]
  • transmembrane domain mediates dynamic localization to active division sites [Pubmed|20516200]
  • complexes are recruited to nascent sites of septation, and are subsequently escorted by the constriction machinery to the center of [SW|sporulation] and division septa [Pubmed|23667326]
