    ..subtilis to lysozyme. Strains with null mutations in either sigV or all seven ECF ? factor genes (?7ECF) have essentially equal increases in sensitivity to lysozyme...
  2. Hastie J, Williams K, Ellermeier C. The activity of ?V, an extracytoplasmic function ? factor of Bacillus subtilis, is controlled by regulated proteolysis of the anti-? factor RsiV. J Bacteriol. 2013;195:3135-44 pubmed publisher
    ..Collectively, these data provide evidence that the mechanism for ?(V) activation in B. subtilis is controlled by regulated intramembrane proteolysis (RIP) and requires the site 2 protease RasP. ..

    ..A mutation in sigV results in increased sensitivity to lysozyme killing, suggesting that ?(V) is required for lysozyme resistance...

    ..Thus, unlike other ECF σ factors which require regulated intramembrane proteolysis for activation, the sensor for σV activation is not the site-1 protease but the anti-σ factor. ..
