Many bacteria developed a possibility to recognise aspects of their environment or to communicate with each other by chemical signals. An important strategy is the so-called quorum sensing (QS), a regulatory mechanism for the gene expression, where the bacteria measure their own cell density by means of this signalling pathway. One of the best-studied species using QS is the marine luminescent bacterium Vibrio fischeri which is considered here as a model organism. The two main regulatory… CONTINUE READING
