Namequorum-sensing, Bacillus PlcR-PapR system
DescriptionActivity of the Bacillus cereus virulence transcriptional activator PlcR depends on binding to the C-terminal heptapeptide of PapR. PapR is exported, cleaved extracellularly by the NprB protease, and the active peptide imported by the oligopeptide permease system OppABCDF.
