  • A Method for Structure-Activity Analysis of Quorum-Sensing Signaling Peptides from Naturally Transformable Streptococci 

    Tian, XiaoLin, Raymond T. Syvitski, TianLei Liu, Nadine Livingstone, et al. 2009. "A Method for Structure-Activity Analysis of Quorum-Sensing Signaling Peptides from Naturally Transformable Streptococci." Biological Procedures Online 11(1): 207-226.
    Many species of streptococci secrete and use a competence-stimulating peptide (CSP) to initiate quorum sensing for induction of genetic competence, bacteriocin production, and other activities. These signaling molecules ...
  • Structure-activity analysis of quorum-sensing signaling peptides from Streptococcus mutans 

    Syvitski, Raymond T., Xiao-Lin Tian, Kamal Sampara, Alan Salman, et al. 2007. "Structure-activity analysis of quorum-sensing signaling peptides from Streptococcus mutans." Journal of Bacteriology 189(4): 1441-1450.
    Streptococcus mutans secretes and utilizes a 21-amino-acid signaling peptide pheromone to initiate quorum sensing for genetic competence, biofilm formation, stress responses, and bacteriocin production. In this study, we ...
