RapE and phrE, which are found in a defective prophage known as the skin element, regulate the activity of Spo0A as described above. Rap60, encoded by pTA1060, can also antagonize the activity of Spo0A, presumably by affecting the phosphorylation of Spo0F, and the activity of Rap60 is antagonized by Phr60 (62). However, it is not known if that is the primary physiological function of this rap/phr pair. We suspect that some of these rap/phr pairs may regulate the mobility of their respective elements.
