The second messenger cyclic dimeric (3′→5′) GMP (cyclic di‐GMP or c‐di‐GMP) has been implicated in the transition between motile and sessile lifestyles in bacteria. In this study, we demonstrate that biofilm formation, cellular aggregation or flocculation, and cellular buoyancy are under the control of c‐di‐GMP in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 (Synechocystis) and Fremyella diplosiphon. Synechocystis is a unicellular cyanobacterium and displays lower levels of c‐di‐GMP; F. diplosiphon is… Expand
