In Bacillus subtilis IS58 starved of glucose or exposed to heat shock, ethanol or salt stress, the σB-dependent general stress protein GsiB is accumulated to a higher level than other general stress proteins. This high-level accumulation of GsiB can at least partially be attributed to the remarkably long half-life (∼20 min) of the gsiB mRNA. Analysis of different gsiB-lacZ fusions revealed that this stability is not determined by sequences at the 3′ end of the transcript but rather by sequences… CONTINUE READING
