Sporulation is a complex developmental system characterizing Gram-positive bacteria of the genus Bacillus and Clostridium. In Bacillus subtilis the phosphorelay signal transduction system regulates the initiation of sporulation by integrating a myriad of positive and negative signals through the action of histidine sensor kinases and aspartyl phosphate phosphatases. The Spo0E family of phosphatases dephosphorylates the Spo0A response regulator and transcription factor of the phosphorelay. In… CONTINUE READING
