Access from EThOS:
The most common quorum sensing (QS) system in Gram-negative bacteria employs N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) as signal molecule. AHLs allow bacteria to monitor their cell density being commonly used to synchronize/coordinate the expression of virulence-associated factors in a community. An AHL QS system is most commonly mediated by two proteins h belonging to the LuxI-AHL synthase and to LuxR-AHL response regulator probtein families.
