RodZ (also known as YfgA) is a component of the core bacterial morphogenic apparatus. RodZ is a key cell shape determinant in rod-shaped bacteria and it interacts with the actin-like cytoskeletal protein MreB. In Bacillus subtilis, this 304-residue transmembrane protein is composed of three distinct domains: a cytoplasmic domain (RodZn), a transmembrane domain, and an extra-cytoplasmic domain (RodZc). Here we report the 1H, 13C and 15N backbone and side chain resonance assignments of the RodZc domain from B. subtilis by NMR spectroscopy, and the resulting secondary structure prediction.
