  • a All stress-induced genes were analyzed for the occurrence of a potential signal sequence with the SignalP algorithm of Nielsen et al. (35), and potential candidates were subsequently compared with a recent genome-based analysis of the secretome of B. subtilis by Tjalsma et al. (45). Proteins displaying ςB-dependent stress-induced synthesis are shown in boldface.
