ABSTRACT
The term quorum sensing (QS) refers to the ability of bacteria to regulate gene expression according to the accumulation of signalling molecules that are made by every cell in the population. The erwiniae group of bacteria are often phytopathogens and the expression of a number of their important virulence determinants and secondary metabolites is under QS control. The erwiniae utilise two types of QS signalling molecules: N-acyl homoserine lactones and AI-2-type signalling molecules. Here, we review the regulatory networks involving QS in the soft rot erwiniae.
