Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: membrane ATPase of the MinC-MinD-MinE system that regulates septum placement

Gene: minD Accession Numbers: EG10597 (EcoCyc), b1175, ECK1163

Synonyms: minB

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Regulation summary diagram for minD

MinD recruits MinC to the membrane to form the MinC-MinD complex, which inhibits septum formation, and MinE acts to localize and restrict inhibition to the inappropriate septation sites [deBoer89, Zhao95b, Pichoff95, Raskin97, King99, Shih02, Hu03].

MinD exhibits ATPase activity [deBoer91]. MinD ATPase activity is required for the MinC-mediated inhibition pathway [deBoer91], and MinD ATPase activity is positively regulated by MinE and phospholipid [Hu01, Lutkenhaus03]. MinD mediates MinC activity as well as the sensitivity of MinC to MinE localization/regulation [deBoer92]. MinD affects the affinity of MinC for the septal ring [Johnson02]. MinD is necessary for formation of the MinE ring [Raskin97].

MinC-MinD has been reported to interfere with FtsZ ring assembly [Pichoff01] and with FtsA assembly into the FtsZ ring [Justice00]. The location of the MinC-MinD complex oscillates from pole to pole within the cell; MinE causes complex dissociation that is followed rapidly by complex formation at the opposite pole [Raskin99, Raskin99a, Hu99a, Hale01, Meinhardt01, Howard01, Kruse02, Corbin02, Hu02, Lackner03, Hu03, Lutkenhaus03, Shih03].

MinD localizes to the inner membrane [deBoer91, Rowland00]. MinD is a peripheral membrane protein that has a phospholipid-interaction motif [Szeto02]. Membrane interaction is discussed in detail [Hu03a, Lackner03, Mileykovskaya03, Zhou03b, Szeto03].

MinD exhibits self-interaction [Szeto01] that is regulated by ATP [Hu03]. MinD forms ATP-dependent helical structures within phospholipid vesicles, and these structures dissociate upon MinE-stimulated ATP hydrolysis [Hu02, Suefuji02]. Large coiled structures containing MinC, MinD, and MinE are observed in vivo [Shih03]. MinC and MinD interact, and MinE disrupts the interaction between MinC and MinD and the membrane association of the complex [Huang96, Hu03, Lutkenhaus03, Lackner03]. The MinC C terminus mediates interaction with MinD [Hu00]. MinD and MinE interact [Ma03a]. MinD forms dimers in vitro. The binding sites for MinC and MinE are located at the dimer interface and overlap [Wu11].

Mutations in the ATP binding region affect interaction with MinC [Hayashi01]. Overexpression of minCD causes inviability, and this phenotype is suppressed by overexpression of ftsZ or by certain ftsZ mutations [Bi90]. MinC and MinD exhibit an antagonistic genetic interaction with the SdiA activator of ftsQAZ expression [Wang91]. Overproduction of MinD causes a cell division defect that is suppressed by mutations in MinC [Mulder92].

Mutation of the minB locus causes a minicell phenotype [Davie84, deBoer88]. Mutation of the minB locus leads to septation at polar and non-polar sites [Jaffe88, Yu99], disturbances in the cell cycle [Akerlund92], a DNA supercoiling defect [Mulder90], and defects in DNA segregation [Jaffe88, Mulder90, Akerlund92]. Overexpression of the minB locus causes a minicell phenotype [deBoer88] and a DNA supercoiling defect [Mulder90].

MinD has similarity to the ParA family of ATPases [MotallebiVeshar90]. MinD has similarity to E. coli CobB and CobQ [Galperin00].

Regulation has been described [deBoer88]. The minB locus includes the minC, minD, and minE genes [deBoer89].
