Description: Bacteria use a cell-to-cell communication system called “quorum sensing” (QS) to obtain information on bacterial density in their environment for regulating the expression of genes involved in virulence and biofilm formation in response to fluctuations in cell density. Gram-positive bacteria such as Streptococci use short peptides called “competence stimulating peptide” (CSP), a quorum sensing (QS) molecule, which requires a two-component (histidine kinase receptor and response regulator) transduction system for detection and function.
