DESCRIPTION
Also known as MAMK_MAGGM, mamK. Protein with ATPase activity which forms dynamic cytoplasmic filaments that are involved in sorting, concatenating and/or correctly positioning of magnetosomes in the cell. Not absolutely necessary for assembly of short chains (PubMed:20487281, PubMed:22586444, PubMed:27733152). Filaments grow from the both cell poles towards midcell, and are probably disassembled at the other end of the cell, a process known as treadmilling (PubMed:27733152). Polymerizes in the presence of ATP, GTP or a non-hydrolyzable ATP analog (PubMed:22586444). Required for correct segregation and positioning of magnetosomes following cell division (PubMed:22026731, PubMed:27733152). Forms cytoplasmic filaments (PubMed:17601786, PubMed:20487281, PubMed:22026731, PubMed:22586444, PubMed:24272781). Interacts with MamJ (PubMed:17601786). Forms filaments in the absence of other magnetosome proteins and in E.coli (PubMed:20487281). Filament formation in vitro requires ATP, GTP or a non-hydrolyzable ATP analog (PubMed:22586444).
