Sporulation stage V, protein S (IPR007347)

Short name: SpoVS

Family relationships

None.

Description

In Bacillus subtilis this protein interferes with sporulation at an early stage and this inhibitory effect is overcome by SpoIIB and SpoVG. SpoVS seems to play a positive role in allowing progression beyond stage V of sporulation. Null mutations in the spoVS gene block sporulation at stage V, impairing the development of heat resistance and coat assembly [PMID: 7559352].
