A new Pseudomonas quinolone signal (PQS) binding partner: MexG.

Abstract

The opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa utilises the cell-cell signalling mechanism known as quorum sensing to regulate virulence. P. aeruginosa produces two quinolone-based quorum sensing signalling molecules; the Pseudomonas quinolone signal (PQS) and its biosynthetic precursor 2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone (HHQ). To date, only one receptor (the PqsR… (More)
