Regulated DNA rearrangement during sporulation in Bacillus weihenstephanensis KBAB4.


Temperate phages can integrate their genomes into a specific region of a host chromosome to produce lysogens (prophage). During genome insertion, prophages may interrupt the gene coding sequence. In Bacillus subtilis, the sigma factor gene sigK is interrupted by a 48 kb prophage-like element. sigK is a composite coding sequence from two partial genes during… (More)
