Identification and characterization of acyl-homoserine lactone signaling molecules produced by varying strains of Bradyrhizobium japonicum
Keywords and Phrases
Bradyrhizobium japonicum; Quorum sensing
"Bacterium-bacterium signaling, termed quorum sensing is a relatively well described phenomenon in bacteria. The best characterized quorum-sensing mechanism is found in Gram-negative organisms and incorporates the use of acylated homoserine lactones (AHLs) as signal molecules. Until this study, Bradyrhizobium japonicum, the soybean symbiont, was absent from the list of known autoinducer producing organisms. The data presented here describe the discovery of autoinducer production in several strains of B. japonicum"--Abstract, leaf iii.
