Conserved Protein Domain Family

cl06949: SspH Superfamily 
Small acid-soluble spore protein H family
This family consists of the small acid-soluble spore proteins (SASP) of the H type (sspH). SspH are unique to spores of Bacillus subtilis and are expressed only in the forespore compartment during sporulation of this organism. The sspH genes are monocistronic and are recognized by the forespore-specific sigma factor for RNA polymerase - sigma-G. The specific role of this protein is unclear but is thought to play a role in sporulation under conditions different from that of the common laboratory tests of spore properties.
