Table 3 A literature survey of the relationship between the presence of the luxS gene and QS-2 dependent behavior in bacterial species without a luxP- or a lsrB-gene homolog in their genome for which the presence of a QS-2 system was claimed

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