Stationary-phase quorum-sensing signals affect autoinducer-2 and gene expression in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

Quorum sensing via autoinducer-2 (AI-2) has been identified in different strains, including those from Escherichia, Vibrio, Streptococcus, and Bacillus species, and previous studies have suggested the existence of additional quorum-sensing signals working in the stationary phase of Escherichia coli cultures. To investigate the presence and global effect of… (More)
