Erwinia psidii is a
Gram-negative bacterium and a phytopathogen of the
common guava (Psidium guajava), causing rot in branches, flowers and
fruits. Recently, it was demonstrated that this species produces
two acyl-homoserine lactones (S-(-)-N-hexanoyl- and
N-heptanoyl-homoserine lactone), widely recognized bacterial quorum
sensing signaling substances, and employed in bacterial cell-to-cell
