Abstract

Siblicide is a phenomenon defined in the present context as an Enterococcus strain that, while growing as a colony on solid media, exhibits an inhibitory effect on a lawn composed of the identical strain. It was shown to occur in seven clinical isolates of enterococci (one E. faecalis and six E. faecium). Four involve inhibitory anti-listerial activities consistent with class II bacteriocins, two of which appear to be up-regulated by extracellular autoinducers.
