A study evaluating the structure-activity relationships in FtsZ1 in A. thaliana is reported. 17468127
plastid division protein FtsZ1 may have a function during leaf development in thylakoid organization 17725544
The chloroplast division site placement involves a balance between the opposing activities of AtMinE1 and AtMinD1, which acts to prevent FtsZ ring formation anywhere outside of the mid-chloroplast. 18204083
Results describe the in vivo quantitative relationship between plastid division proteins FtsZ1 and FtsZ2 and identification of ARC6 and ARC3 in a native FtsZ complex. 18284374
Specific GTPase activities were determined and found to be different for FtsZ1-1 vs. FtsZ2-1. 19925792
Plastids in pollen grains and growing tubes from transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana lines expressing stroma-localised FtsZ1-green-fluorescent protein fusion in a vegetative cell-specific manner, are presented. 20195657
Evolution of FtsZ-1 in green plants, perhaps arising from an enhanced capacity for the regulation of Z ring composition and activity in vivo. 20421292
FtsZ1 and FtsZ2-1 are capable of in vitro self-assembly into two distinct filament types, termed type-I and type-II. During assembly of the type-II filaments the most common intermediate between the dimer and filament state is a tetramer. 21781955
These results suggest that besides ARC6-mediated anchoring, an additional FtsZ-anchoring mechanism is present in chloroplasts. 23578755
In plants lacking ARC3, the key negative regulator of FtsZ assembly, FtsZ1/FtsZ2 turnover was threefold slower. 25731613
