Bacterial volatiles: the smell of small organisms.
This review describes volatiles released into the air by bacteria growing on defined media. Their occurrence, function, and biosynthesis are discussed, and a total of 308 references are cited. AnExpand

Discovery of Complex Mixtures of Novel Long‐Chain Quorum Sensing Signals in Free‐Living and Host‐Associated Marine Alphaproteobacteria
More than 100 bacterial isolates from various marine habitats were screened for AHL production by using gfp reporter constructs based on the lasR system of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the luxR systemExpand

Tropodithietic acid production in Phaeobacter gallaeciensis is regulated by N-acyl homoserine lactone-mediated quorum sensing.
The production of N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) is widely distributed within the marine Roseobacter clade, and it was proposed that AHL-mediated quorum sensing (QS) is one of the most commonExpand

An Antiaphrodisiac in Heliconius melpomene Butterflies
Gilbert (1976) suggested that male-contributed odors of mated females of Heliconius erato could enforce monogamy. We investigated the pheromone system of a relative, Heliconius melpomene, usingExpand

Composition of larval secretion ofChrysomela lapponica (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) and its dependence on host plant
The defensive secretion ofChrysomela lapponica larvae, which is produced by nine pairs of exocrine dorsal glands, has been chemically analyzed. TheC. lapponica larvae were kept in the laboratory onExpand

A novel type of geosmin biosynthesis in myxobacteria.
The biosynthesis of geosmin (1) and (1(10)E,5E)-germacradien-11-ol (2), two volatile terpenoid compounds emitted by the myxobacteria Myxococcus xanthus and Stigmatella aurantiaca, was investigated inExpand

Production of Bioactive Volatiles by Different Burkholderia ambifaria Strains
Increasing evidence indicates that volatile compounds emitted by bacteria can influence the growth of other organisms. In this study, the volatiles produced by three different strains of BurkholderiaExpand

Autoinducer-2-regulated genes in Streptococcus mutans UA159 and global metabolic effect of the luxS mutation.
Autoinducer 2 (AI-2) is the only species-nonspecific autoinducer known in bacteria and is produced by both gram-negative and gram-positive organisms. Consequently, it is proposed to function as aExpand
