Description

Members of this entry, which includes the Bacillus subtilis protein YsxE, are found only in the family Bacillaceae, part of the the endospore-forming group within the Firmicutes. As a rule, the ysxE gene is found immediately downstream of spoVID, a gene necessary for spore coat assembly. The protein has been shown to be part of the spore coat and is a homologue of CotS (IPR014255).
