Three abundant small acid-soluble proteins (SASPs) from spores of Bacillus globigii were sequenced using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry with post-source decay and nanoelectrospray collision-induced dissociation tandem mass spectrometry. The proteins were extracted from spores with 1 M HCl. Scanning electron micrographs of spores before and after acid extraction show that the spores retain their overall structure but have a shriveled texture… CONTINUE READING
