Quorum sensing-mediated regulation of staphylococcal virulence and antibiotic resistance.


Accessory gene regulator (agr)-mediated quorum sensing plays a central role in staphylococcal pathogenesis. It primarily upregulates secreted virulence factors and downregulates cell surface proteins, thereby governing invasiveness of staphylococci and cell dispersal from biofilms. Except for α- and β-PSMs, which are directly controlled by AgrA, the… (More)
