ylxL was found to be the last gene of the fla/che operon in Bacillus subtilis and is cotranscribed with the gene for the flagellum-specific alternate sigma factor, sigma(D). The ylxL gene was disrupted by insertional mutagenesis, and the resultant mutant strain was found to be compromised for sigma(D)-dependent functions.
