We are grateful to the members of the Japanese B. subtilis genomics project for their help to survey the recent papers with respect to the DNA-binding proteins. We also thank John D. Helmann and Hideto Takami for providing us with their sequence data; Ikuo Uchiyama for a table of orthologous genes between B. subtilis and B. halodurans; Yukiko Nakanishi for the assistance; and the B. stearothermophilus Genome Sequencing Project funded by NSF EPSCoR Program for releasing unfinished sequence data. This work was supported in part by Special Coordination Funds for Promoting Science and Technology from Science and Technology Agency. KY, YF, and KN were also supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Priority Areas from the Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture of Japan.
