CommentMembers of this protein family are the stage II sporulation protein SpoIIGA. This protein acts as an activating protease for Sigma-E, one of several specialized sigma factors of the sporulation process in Bacillus subtilis and related endospore-forming bacteria.
ReferencesDR SWISSPROT; P13801; Bacillus subtilis DR PFAM; PF03419; Peptidase_U4 RM 10498732 RT The "pro" sequence of the sporulation-specific sigma transcription factor sigma(E) directs it to the mother cell side of the sporulation septum.
