Bacteriocins are proteins produced by bacteria to destroy other bacteria occupying their ecological niche. Photorhabdus luminescens is an insect pathogenic bacterium carried by an entomopathogenic nematode and occupies several different niches in its life cycle. The nematode enters the insect and releases a single strain of P. luminescens. The bacteria then kill the host and the bacteria and nematodes replicate within the cadaver. Strikingly, at the end of the infection the cadaver is still… CONTINUE READING
