FtsZ is a prokaryotic homolog of eukaryotic tubulin and forms the essential bacterial cell division ring (Z-ring). A new study in this issue of Chemistry & Biology, Läppchen et al., provides further evidence that differences in nucleotide-binding properties of FtsZ and tubulin can be exploited to specifically target the bacterial Z-ring. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
