Detection of quorum sensing signal molecules and mutation of luxS gene in Vibrio ichthyoenteri.

Abstract

Some pathogenic species belonging to the Vibrionaceae family have been shown to regulate virulence through a complicated network of quorum sensing systems. In this study, three kinds of N-acylhomoserine lactone (AHL) signal molecules were detected in Vibrio ichthyoenteri DA3, a pathogen of cultured turbot (Scophthalmus maximus), with the Agrobacterium… (More)
