Abstract

Quorum sensing is a cell-density-dependent regulatory mechanism which, in Gram-negative bacteria, usually involves the production and detection of N-acyl homoserine lactones (HSLs). In the last four years HSL-dependent quorum sensing has been identified in members of the Burkholderia cepacia complex, and this mini-review summarizes initial findings and discusses future perspectives.
