    ..Alternatively, the result could suggest that YjbD has a negative effect on regulated proteolysis and that MecA is degraded independently of ClpP when YjbD is absent. ..

    ..Spx probably is degraded by ClpCP under as yet unidentified conditions. This study suggests that the level of Spx is tightly controlled by two different ClpP proteases. ..
