Abstract
The nucleotide sequence of 45,389 bp in the 184°-180° region of the Bacillus subtilis chromosome, containing the cge cluster, which is controlled by the sporulation regulatory protein GerE, was determined. Fifty-four putative ORFs with putative ribosome-binding sites were recognized. Seven of them correspond to previously characterized genes: cgeB, cgeA, cgeC, cgeD, cgeE, ctpA, and odhA. The deduced products of 25 ORFs were found to display significant similarities to proteins in the data banks. We have identified genes involved in detoxification, cell walls, and in the metabolism of biotins, purines, fatty acids, carbohydrates and amino acids. The remaining 22 ORFs showed no similarity to known proteins. Both an attachment site of the SPβ prophage and 2 new putative DNA replication terminators were identified in this region.
