Galactosamine-6-phosphate was identified as a component of the coat of the Bacillus megaterium QM B1551 spore. It was one of the main constituents of the outermost layer of the spore coat, but it was absent from the other integuments including the cortex. These findings suggest that galactosamine-6-phosphate comprises the phosphorus-containing skeleton structure of the spore coat.
