A phylogenetic approach to assessing the targets of microbial warfare

Riley, Margaret A; Goldstone, C; Wertz, J E; Gordon, David

Description

Bacteriocins are the most abundant and diverse defense systems in bacteria. As a result of the specific mechanisms of bacteriocin recognition and translocation into the target cell it is assumed that these toxins mediate intra-specific or population-level interactions. However, no published studies specifically address this question. We present here a survey of bacteriocin production in a collection of enteric bacteria isolated from wild mammals in Australia. A subset of the...[Show more]
