Starvation induces Bacillus subtilis to initiate a -simple, two-cell developmental process that begins with an asymmetric cell division. Activation of the first compartment-specific transcription factor, sigmaF, is coupled to this morphological event. SpoIIE, a bifunctional protein, is essential for the compartment-specific activation of sigmaF and also has a morphogenic activity required for asymmetric cell division. SpoIIE consists of three domains: a hydrophobic N-terminal domain, which… CONTINUE READING
