The bacterial second messenger c-di-GMP: mechanisms of signalling.

Author information

Department of Microbiology, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA.


Cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP) regulates many important bacterial processes. Freely diffusible intracellular c-di-GMP is determined by the action of metabolizing enzymes that allow integration of numerous input signals. c-di-GMP specifically regulates multiple cellular processes by binding to diverse target molecules. This review highlights important questions in research into the mechanisms of c-di-GMP signalling and its role in bacterial physiology.
