SpoIIID during engulfment

SpoIIID levels decrease upon activation of σK, mediated by a repressing action on σE availability 111, 153. This relieves the repressor activity that SpoIIID has on a number of mother cell-specific genes and thus allows for transcription of these genes by σK and GerE 112.
