We have identified an additional sporulation gene, named spoIIP, in the region of the Bacillus subtilis chromosome located immediately downstream of the gpr gene (227 degrees on the genetic map). A null mutation of spoIIP arrests sporulation at an early stage of engulfment (stage IIii), a phenotype similar to that already described for spoIID and spoIIM mutants. This gene encodes a 401-residue polypeptide, which is predicted to be anchored in the membrane, most of the protein being localized… CONTINUE READING
