A compartmentalized regulator of developmental gene expression in Bacillus subtilis.


We have identified a new Bacillus subtilis gene, spoVT, whose gene product is homologous to the transcriptional regulator AbrB and serves as a regulator of E sigmaG-controlled gene expression. SpoVT acts both positively and negatively in controlling sigmaG-dependent gene expression, providing an additional level of refinement to forespore gene regulation and feedback control of spoIIIG expression.
