Bacillus subtilis spo IE Gene Is Transcribed by & E-Associated RNA Polymerase


Expression of the Bacilus subtilis sporulation gene spoVE was examined by runoff transcription assay with an RNA polymerase preparation obtained from vegetative and sporulating cells. Transcripts from tandem promoters (P1 and P2 promoters) located just upstream of the spoVEstructure gene were detected. The transcription ofspoVE initiated within an hour… (More)
