Abstract

Summary: Two highly homologous flagellin genes, and are expressed in subsp. Both genes were found to be transcribed during vegetative growth. After the onset of sporulation, transcripts could not be detected. Both and were found to be transcribed from σ-like promoters. In addition, the 3'-terminal half of was cloned and sequenced, completing the sequence of
