Erwinia carotovora subsp. atroseptica, E. carotovora subsp. betavasculorum, and E. carotovora subsp. carotovora produce high levels of extracellular enzymes, such as pectate lyase (Pel), polygalacturonase (Peh), cellulase (Cel), and protease (Prt), and the quorum-sensing signal N-acyl-homoserine lactone (AHL) at 28 degrees C. However, the production of these enzymes and AHL by these bacteria is severely inhibited during growth at elevated temperatures (31.2 degrees C for E. carotovora subsp… CONTINUE READING
