Product name: Synthetic XIP (sXIP)
Synonyms: ComS(11–17) peptide,competence-inducing peptide (CIP),
Purity: 95% by HPLC
Counter ion: Trifluoroacetate
Format: Lyophilized powder
Description: Synthetic XIP (sXIP) (amino acid sequence, GLDWWSL), corresponding to residues 11 to 17 of ComS.Providing S. mutans with synthetic fragments of CIP revealed that seven C-terminal residues, including the WW motif, cause robust induction of both sigX and the competent state.ComS11–17 was unable to rescue the transformation-deficient phenotype of the comR deletion, supporting the hypothesis that the competence-inducing properties of ComS are propagated through ComR.
