cis SequenceTTGCGGN4CCGCAA(4, 5)
LigandThe pheromone ComX contacts ComP directly (9).
CommentGamma-PGA synthesis in B. subtilis (natto) is under the control of ComPA (8). srfA activation seen in the comP mutant is dependent on the expression of pta (10). ComA was essential for bacilysin biosynthesis (11). Dna micrarray analysis (12). ComX variants are isoprenylated by the post-translational modification (13). comA is involved in the regulation of post-exponential phase prokaryotic differentiation (14). PhrC (ERGMT) peptide inhibits RapC acting on ComA (15). Spx disrupts complex formation between ComA and promoter-bound RNAP (16).Interaction of RapC with ComA inhibits response regulator-DNA binding
