Sigma(B) is an alternative sigma factor that controls the general stress response in Bacillus subtilis. In the absence of stress, sigma(B) is negatively regulated by anti-sigma factor RsbW. RsbW is also a protein kinase which can phosphorylate RsbV. When cells are stressed, RsbW binds to unphosphorylated RsbV, produced from the phosphorylated form of RsbV by two phosphatases (RsbU and RsbP) which are activated by stress. We now report the values of the K(m) for ATP and the K(i) for ADP of RsbW… CONTINUE READING
