Title

Microbial warfare mediated by the type VI protein secretion system

Abstract

“The best defense is a good offence”, a military motto, also applies to the warfare of primitive microbes in complex multispecies environments. The type VI secretion system (T6SS), a lethal weapon Gram-negative bacteria employ to deliver toxic effectors to neighboring cells, drives the formation of clonal single-species clusters from mixed populations, defining the social boundary of a multispecies community.
