Abstract

The activity of VI DNA methyltransferase was monitored during the sporulative cycle of V. Significant methylase activity was found only in bacteria growing vegetatively. This was confirmed by Northern hybridization, which indicated that the gene was not transcribed in cells undergoing sporulation. Supporting evidence came from experiments which demonstrated that the RNA polymerase holoenzyme from these cells did not recognize the promoter elements upstream of the gene.
