Structure-activity analysis of quorum-sensing signaling peptides from Streptococcus mutans
Streptococcus mutans secretes and utilizes a 21-amino-acid signaling peptide pheromone to initiate quorum sensing for genetic competence, biofilm formation, stress responses, and bacteriocin production. In this study, we ...
A Method for Structure-Activity Analysis of Quorum-Sensing Signaling Peptides from Naturally Transformable Streptococci
Many species of streptococci secrete and use a competence-stimulating peptide (CSP) to initiate quorum sensing for induction of genetic competence, bacteriocin production, and other activities. These signaling molecules ...
