Table 1 A literature survey of the relationship between the presence of the luxS gene and QS-2 dependent behavior in bacterial species carrying either a luxP- or a lsrB-gene homolog in their genome

From: Lack of genomic evidence of AI-2 receptors suggests a non-quorum sensing role for luxS in most bacteria
