The extracellular Phr peptide-Rap phosphatase signaling circuit of Bacillus subtilis.


In the field of cell-cell communication, an emerging class of extracellular signaling peptides that function intracellularly has been identified in Gram-positive bacteria. One illustrative member of this group is the Phr family of extracellular signaling peptides of Bacillus subtilis. The Phr signaling peptides are secreted by the bacterium, and then… (More)
