In response to starvation, Myxococcus xanthus initiates a developmental programme that results in the formation of spore-filled multicellular fruiting bodies. Fruiting body formation depends on the temporal and spatial coordination of aggregation and sporulation and involves temporally and spatially coordinated changes in gene expression. This paper reports the identification of two genes, hthA and hthB, that are important for fruiting body formation. hthA and hthB are co-transcribed, and… CONTINUE READING
