Proteolysis is an important part of many fundamental cellular processes. The intricate involvement of proteases and peptidases in protein quality control, general stress response, control of regulatory networks and development in B. subtilis are introduced in this review. Especially the more recent developments on the role of AAA+ proteins and their adaptor proteins in regulated and general proteolysis and the role of regulated intra-membrane proteolysis and membrane proteases in signal transduction are discussed read more ...
