Short name: Sigma-G-dep_sporulation_SASP

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the sigma-G-dependent, sporulation-specific protein SASP (Small Acid-soluble Spore Proteins), which is found in the Bacillaceae family of bacteria. SASP are synthesised in the developing forespore and saturate spore DNA [PMID: 11092849]. In Bacillus subtilis, there are three major SASP: alpha, beta and gamma [PMID: 9852018].
