Abstract

The initiation of sporulation in Bacillus subtilis is regulated by a signal transduction system leading to activation (by phosphorylation) of the Spo0A transcription factor. Activated Spo0A controls the expression of genes encoding different RNA polymerase sigma factors, whose synthesis and activities are related to morphological events and intercompartmental communication between the developing forespore and the mother cell.
