As already discussed, the best characterized protein component of this structure is BclA. ExsFA/BxpB has an important role in BclA deposition. , 2009). , 2004). , 2008). Interestingly, two genes in the cluster are homologs of genes (spsA-L and cgeA-E) possibly involved in the biosynthesis of spore-associated polysaccharides in B. subtilis (Charnock and Davies, 1999). , 2005; Charnock and Davies, 1999). , 2005). BclB has high sequence similarity to BclA including, in particular, a collagen-like region.

A) Cartoon showing a mature spore. The outermost structure is the exosporium, comprising a thin basal layer from which extend a series or hair-like projections, or nap. A gap, refered to as the interspace, separates the exosporium from the coat (indicated as a thick line with ridges). A bracket indicates one of the ridges of the coat. Beneath the coat is the spore peptidoglycan (known as the cortex, indicated by a thick grey band). (b) Image of the coat surface generated by atomic force microscopy.
