AccessionGenProp0847
Nameexosporium
TypeSYSTEM
DescriptionThe exosporium is an outermost extra surface layer of spores formed by some members of the genus Bacillus, including pathogens B. anthracis and B. cereus. It consists of a basal layer and a nap of hair-like filaments.
JCVI RoleSporulation and germination
Parent PropertyGenProp0069: cell surface component
GenProp0179: protein transport
