We have determined the nucleotide (nt) sequence of the wild-type div+ gene of Bacillus subtilis which complements the temperature-sensitive div-341 mutation and is involved in cell septation, sporulation, secretion of extracellular enzymes, development of competence, autolysis and spore outgrowth. It has an open reading frame encoding 841 amino acids (aa) with homology to the Escherichia coli secA gene, which is involved in protein secretion and cell separation. The deduced aa sequence of the B… CONTINUE READING
