Paper of the month: December 2014

  • Cell division is facilitated by a molecular machine - the divisome - that assembles at mid-cell in dividing cells. The formation of the cytokinetic Z-ring by FtsZ is regulated by several factors, including the divisome component EzrA. Cleverley et al. now describe the structure of the cytoplasmic domain of EzrA which comprises five linear repeats of an unusual triple helical bundle. The EzrA structure is bent into a semicircle, providing the protein with the potential to interact at both N- and C-termini with adjacent membrane-bound divisome components. The individual repeats, and their linear organization, are homologous to the spectrin proteins that connect actin filaments to the membrane in eukaryotes, and EzrA is proposed to be the founding member of the bacterial spectrin family.
