Bacterial communication in Gram positive cells

Post by mmoir125 » Thu Mar 25, 2010 1:19 am

I’m currently under going a project, were I need to know how Gram positive bacteria communicate. So far I know than cells use Quorum sensing and signal transduction are two methods used.

What I need to know is what are the molecules released, what pathways are activated and how they are regulated. Also any examples would be helpful I know one so far that Enterococcus faecalis uses QS to form a Biofilm, but any others would be a great help.
But there's more old drunks than there are old doctors, So I think that I'll have another round!
