Cyclic di-guanylic acid (c-diGMP) is a second messenger that modulates the cell surface properties of several microorganisms. Concentrations of c-diGMP in the cell are controlled by the opposing activities of diguanylate cyclases and phosphodiesterases, which are carried out by proteins harbouring GGDEF and EAL domains respectively. In this study, we report(More)
In Vibrio cholerae, the second messenger 3',5'-cyclic diguanylic acid (c-di-GMP) regulates several cellular processes, such as formation of corrugated colony morphology, biofilm formation, motility, and virulence factor production. Both synthesis and degradation of c-di-GMP in the cell are modulated by proteins containing GGDEF and/or EAL domains, which(More)
Vibrio cholerae switches between free-living motile and surface-attached sessile lifestyles. Cyclic diguanylate (c-di-GMP) is a signaling molecule controlling such lifestyle changes. C-di-GMP is synthesized by diguanylate cyclases (DGCs) that contain a GGDEF domain and is degraded by phosphodiesterases (PDEs) that contain an EAL or HD-GYP domain. We(More)
