Expression level of a chimeric kinase governs entry into sporulation in Bacillus subtilis.


Upon starvation, Bacillus subtilis cells switch from growth to sporulation. It is believed that the N-terminal sensor domain of the cytoplasmic histidine kinase KinA is responsible for detection of the sporulation-specific signal(s) that appears to be produced only under starvation conditions. Following the sensing of the signal, KinA triggers… (More)
