Surface proteins of gram-positive bacteria often play a role in adherence of the bacteria to host tissue and are frequently required for virulence. A specific subgroup of extracellular proteins contains the cell wall-sorting motif LPxTG, which is the target for cleavage and covalent coupling to the peptidoglycan by enzymes called sortases.

The ability of microorganisms to adapt to changing environments and gain cell robustness, challenges the prediction of their history-dependent behaviour. Using our model organism Bacillus cereus, a notorious Gram-positive food spoilage and pathogenic spore-forming bacterium, a strategy will be described that allows for identification of biomarkers for(More)
