[Secondary metabolites as endogenous effectors of microbial cytodifferentiation].

  • Published 1983 in Zeitschrift fur allgemeine Mikrobiologie


The present survey covers the regulatory role of microbial secondary metabolites and related compounds as endogenous signals of cell differentiation of the producing organisms. Several antibiotics have been shown to exert autoregulatory effects on differentiation-associated functions. The mechanisms of self-protection of the producing cells against the… (More)
