Nucleotide sequence and insertional inactivation of a Bacillus subtilis gene that affects cell division, sporulation, and temperature sensitivity.


Located at 135 degrees on the Bacillus subtilis genetic map are several genes suspected to be involved in cell division and sporulation. Previously isolated mutations mapping at 135 degrees include the tms-12 mutation and mutations in the B. subtilis homologs of the Escherichia coli cell division genes ftsA and ftsZ. Previously, we cloned and sequenced the… (More)
