Namequorum-sensing system, cyclic peptide-mediated
DescriptionThe four characterized component of the staphylococcal agr system are a propeptide, a processing enzyme, a histidine kinase (AgrC), and a response regulator (AgrA). In the related Enterococcus faecalis fsr system, the propeptide occurs as an extension of the processing enzyme, may be autoprocessed from it, and may also be independently translated.
