    Extracellular Death Factor

    $86.36 - $302.23
    Extracellular Death Factor (EDF) is the dramatic name given to an interesting linear pentapeptide produced by E. coli, first identified by Engelberg-Kulka and colleagues in 2007 and published in Science.

    EDF is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Good water solubility.
    Mechanism of ActionEDF acts as a quorum sensing agent, regulating bacterial cell density by balancing the levels of toxin and antitoxin via mazEF-mediated cell death genes.
    Molecular FormulaC27H36N10O10
    ReferencesA linear pentapeptide is a quorum-sensing factor required for mazEF-mediated cell death in Escherichia coli. Kolodkin-Gal I. et al. Science 2007, 318, 652.
