Identification and localization of the major proteins degraded during germination of Bacillus megaterium spores.

  • Published 1975 in The Journal of biological chemistry


Of the 15 to 20% of total spore protein which is degraded during germination of spores of Bacillus megaterium, greater than 80% is derived from a protein fraction soluble in dilute acids such as acetic acid that contains two major proteins, termed A and B. These two proteins are low or absent in germinated spores, log phase cells, and early stationary phase… (More)
