[Quorum sensing in class II bacteriocin-producing lactic acid bacteria and its application--a review].

Abstract

Quorum sensing (QS) refers to the behavior of microorganisms to control gene expression through detection the concentration of certain signal molecules, which is correlated with cell density. In many class II bacteriocin-producing lactic acid bacteria (LAB), bacteriocin production is regulated by peptide pheromones via a QS mechanism. We reviewed, QS… (More)
