We have determined a sequence of 2073 bp from two recombinant plasmids carrying the whole spoIIA locus from Bacillus subtilis, the expression of which is required for spore formation. The sequence contains three long open reading frames (ORFs), each of them being preceded by a ribosome binding site. These three putative proteins (mol. wts 13100, 16300 and 22200) are likely to be expressed and are probably encoded on the same mRNA. The stop codon of ORF1 overlaps with the start codon of ORF2… CONTINUE READING
