The ExsA protein of Bacillus cereus is required for assembly of coat and exosporium onto the spore surface.
Bailey-Smith K, Todd SJ, Southworth TW, Proctor J, Moir A. Bailey-Smith K, et al. Among authors: moir a. J Bacteriol. 2005 Jun;187(11):3800-6. doi: 10.1128/JB.187.11.3800-3806.2005. J Bacteriol. 2005. PMID: 15901704 Free PMC article.
The outermost layer of spores of the Bacillus cereus family is a loose structure known as the exosporium. Spores of a library of Tn917-LTV1 transposon insertion mutants of B. cereus ATCC 10876 were partitioned into hexadecane; a less hydrophobic mutant that w …

Spore Germination.
Moir A, Cooper G. Moir A, et al. Microbiol Spectr. 2015 Dec;3(6). doi: 10.1128/microbiolspec.TBS-0014-2012. Microbiol Spectr. 2015. PMID: 27337279 Review.
Despite being resistant to a variety of environmental insults, the bacterial endospore can sense the presence of small molecules and respond by germinating, losing the specialized structures of the dormant spore, and resuming active metabolism, before outgrowing into veget …

Surface architecture of endospores of the Bacillus cereus/anthracis/thuringiensis family at the subnanometer scale.
Kailas L, Terry C, Abbott N, Taylor R, Mullin N, Tzokov SB, Todd SJ, Wallace BA, Hobbs JK, Moir A, Bullough PA. Kailas L, et al. Among authors: moir a. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2011 Sep 20;108(38):16014-9. doi: 10.1073/pnas.1109419108. Epub 2011 Sep 6. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2011. PMID: 21896762 Free PMC article.
We have used electron cryomicroscopy at a resolution of 0.8-0.6 nm and circular dichroism spectroscopic measurements to reveal a highly α-helical structure for both layers. ...Based on our findings, we present a molecular model for the spore surface and propo …

YwdL in Bacillus cereus: its role in germination and exosporium structure.
Terry C, Shepherd A, Radford DS, Moir A, Bullough PA. Terry C, et al. Among authors: moir a. PLoS One. 2011;6(8):e23801. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0023801. Epub 2011 Aug 24. PLoS One. 2011. PMID: 21887322 Free PMC article.
Efforts have been made to identify proteins of the exosporium but only a few have so far been characterised and their role in determining spore architecture and spore function is still poorly understood. ...ΔywdL spores have a more fragile exosporium, subject to dam …

Effect of amino acid substitutions in the GerAA protein on the function of the alanine-responsive germinant receptor of Bacillus subtilis spores.
Mongkolthanaruk W, Cooper GR, Mawer JS, Allan RN, Moir A. Mongkolthanaruk W, et al. Among authors: moir a. J Bacteriol. 2011 May;193(9):2268-75. doi: 10.1128/JB.01398-10. Epub 2011 Mar 4. J Bacteriol. 2011. PMID: 21378197 Free PMC article.
A P324S substitution in the first residue of a conserved PFPP motif results in a 10-fold increase in a spore's sensitivity to alanine; a P326S change results in the release of phase-dark spores, in which the receptor may be in an "activated" or

Amino acid residues in the GerAB protein important in the function and assembly of the alanine spore germination receptor of Bacillus subtilis 168.
Cooper GR, Moir A. Cooper GR, et al. Among authors: moir a. J Bacteriol. 2011 May;193(9):2261-7. doi: 10.1128/JB.01397-10. Epub 2011 Mar 4. J Bacteriol. 2011. PMID: 21378181 Free PMC article.
The paradigm gerA operon is required for endospore germination in response to c-alanine as the sole germinant, and the three protein products, GerAA, GerAB, and GerAC are predicted to form a receptor complex in the spore inner membrane. ...Single-amino-acid substitutions i …

The GerD protein is predicted to be a lipoprotein that is produced in the forespore compartment of the sporulating cell. Using antibody raised against the GerD protein, Western blots of proteins from spore fractions revealed that, as might be expected, the protein was dete …

The latter is a Na(+)/H(+)-K(+) antiporter that is required for normal spore germination in inosine. The germination properties of single and double mutants of B. cereus ATCC 10876 reveal that unlike GerN, which is required for all germination responses that involve the Ge …
