Abstract

ylxL was found to be the last gene of the fla/che operon in Bacillus subtilis and is cotranscribed with the gene for the flagellum-specific alternate sigma factor, σD. The ylxL gene was disrupted by insertional mutagenesis, and the resultant mutant strain was found to be compromised for σD-dependent functions.
