2007). Therefore, resistance to dendritic cells could be a key factor in the disease. Any and, perhaps, all the spore layers could plausibly contribute to defense against the host. , 2002; Popham, 2002; Setlow, 2003). Here, we focus on the functions of the coat and exosporium, the spore structures most likely to be involved in adaptation to specific niches. FUNCTIONS OF THE COAT Work in B. subtilis demonstrates important roles for the coat in resistance. For example, the coat acts as a sieve, protecting the spore interior from toxic degradative molecules, such as lysozyme, common in host tissues, and other enzymes that could be present in the soil and other environments (Driks, 1999).
