  • While we can trace the evolution of many of the various parts, (by virture of their sequence and structural similarity to other known genes which function singly or in known simpler associations, such as the pore forming portion, the ATPase, the protein that polymerizes the subunits etc …), we do not know of an older structure that uses most of the parts together.

  • MamK is closely related to the MreB family: it has a nucleotide-binding site and polymerizes into filaments that assemble into bundles extending from one pole of the cell to the other.
