Bacteria use small signal molecules, referred to as autoinducers, in order to monitor their population density and coordinate gene expression in a process named quorum sensing. In Gram-negative bacteria, acylated homoserine lactones are the most common autoinducer used for cell-to-cell communication. Increasing evidence that many different functions are controlled by acylated homoserine lactone quorum sensing has stimulated intensive investigations into the physiology, molecular biology and… CONTINUE READING
