Supplementary Material

The Supplemental information includes 2 videos (formation of Nmar_0816-GFP filaments in yeast (Video S1); yeast cell death caused by failure to dissolve Nmar_0816 polymers during cell division (Video S2)), 6 figures (multiple sequence alignment of the CdvB genes from N. maritimus and S. acidocaldarius (Figure S1); diverse polymeric structures formed by Nmar_0816 in yeast (Figure S2); yeast cell death caused by failure to dissolve Nmar_0816 polymers (Figure S3); localization of Nmar_0816 to the rim of endosomes in NRK cells (Figure S4); multiple sequence alignment of the CdvB genes from N. maritimus and ESCRT-III genes from human and fission yeast (Figure S5); expression of E. coli FtsZ mutant (D209A) in yeast (Figure S6)), and 2 tables (list of primers used in this study (Table S1); list of yeast strains used in this study (Table S2)).
