In this paper, the molecular mechanism underlying regulation of nisin and subtilin production is reviewed.
Addition of N-acylhomoserine lactone in the exponential growth phase, regardless of cell density, induces a repression of cell growth of P. aeruginosa
In this study Competence stimulating peptide is shown to initiates release of DNA from a subfraction of the bacterial population, probably by cell lysis.
