Examination of the effects of 56 single-base-pair substitutions in the spoIIG promoter and studies of the interaction of the spo0A product (Spo0A) with this promoter in vitro demonstrated that Spo0A acts directly to enable this promoter to be used by sigma A-associated RNA polymerase (EC 2.7.7.6). The spoIIG operon from Bacillus subtilis is transcribed during sporulation by a form o RNA polymerase containing sigma A, the primary sigma factor in vegetative cells. The spoIIG promoter is unusual… CONTINUE READING
