One of the strongest and most noticeable responses of a Bacillus subtilis cell to a range of stress and starvation conditions is the dramatic induction of a large number of general stress proteins. The alternative sigma factor sigma B is responsible for the induction of the genes encoding these general stress proteins that occurs following heat, ethanol, salt or acid stress, or during energy depletion. sigma B was detected more than 20 years ago by Richard Losick and William Haldenwang as the… CONTINUE READING
