Abstract

The spoIIA operon encodes three genes, including the structural gene for a sporulation-induced sigma factor sigma F. We used deletion analysis of spoIIA-lacZ fusions to define the location of the spoIIA promoter. We found that sigma H-RNA polymerase transcribes spoIIA accurately in vitro and propose that sigma H directs transcription of spoIIA during sporulation.
