The phenomenon of cell-density-dependent control of gene expression, called autoinduction, has long been a subject of interest and investigation in bioluminescent marine bacteria. It is now becoming clear that many other bacteria, including animal and plant pathogens, use an autoinduction mechanism to regulate a variety of functions. Cell-density-dependent gene expression provides an excellent example of multicellular behaviour in the prokaryotic kingdom where a single cell is able to… CONTINUE READING
