Variety of sporulation phenotypes resulting from mutations in a single regulatory locus, spoIIA, in Bacillus subtilis.

Abstract

Closely linked mutations in either of the two putative genes of the sporulation locus spoIIA can affect, in quite diverse ways, spore incidence, the production of alkaline phosphatase and DNAase, and the stability of the cells in sporulation medium. It is concluded that the locus has a regulatory function affecting the activation or induction of at least two, and possibly more, sporulation-associated operons.
