The only quorum sensing (QS) system shared by Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria involves the production of autoinducer-2 (AI-2). However, there have been no reports concerning the AI-2 in Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2). In this study, we investigated AI-2 production and analyzed the relationship between the transcription level of luxS and pfs and AI-2 production. A homologue of luxS, the gene required for AI-2 synthesis in Vibrio harveyi, was isolated from the SS2 genome. V. harveyi… CONTINUE READING
