Bacillus subtilis has different response systems to cope with external and internal stressors. In this study, we investigated the effect of phosphosugar stress caused by accumulation of phosphosugars in B. subtilis. To do so, manA, the encoding gene of mannose-6-phosphate isomerase, was deleted in B. subtilis KM0 to construct strain KM642. Next, strains KM0 and KM642 were cultured in LB with 1% mannose and the cell pellets were isolated after 3.5 h of incubation at 37 °C for transcriptome analysis by RNA-Seq. Differential gene expression analysis was performed based on the RNA-Seq data generated by paired end sequencing (2 x 75nt read length) of Illumina TruSeq stranded mRNA-cDNA libraries on Illumina MiSeq system from control strain and manA deletion mutant.
