Preferential Transcription of Bacillus subtilis Light Deoxyribonucleic Acid Strands During Sporulation

By Toshio Yamakawa and Roy H. Doi

Abstract

Messenger ribonucleic acid (RNA) from log and sporulation stages of growth were transcribed mainly from the heavy strand of the complementary strands of Bacillus subtilis deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). During sporulation a slight transcription shift from heavy to light DNA strands was observed. RNA-DNA hybrid competition experiments revealed that this shift was due to sporulation-specific transcription from light-DNA strands
