Abstract

<I>Chromobacterium violaceum</I> produces the purple pigment violacein by quorum-sensing regulation. 20-bp of the <I>lux</I> box-like sequence was found upstream of <I>vioA</I> in <I>C. violaceum</I> ATCC 12472. CviR received C10-HSL and C6-HSL and activated the transcription of <I>vioA</I> in <I>Escherichia coli</I>. However, in strain ATCC 12472, C6-HSL inhibited both C10-HSL-mediated violacein production and the transcription of <I>vioA</I>.
