A comprehensive reference on the state of the science for both experienced researchers and for those who are interested in discovering its many promising applications examines c di gmp signaling from a variety of angles beginning with an introductory chapter that compares c di gmp to the better known second messenger camp. Cyclic di gmp also called cyclic diguanylate and c di gmp is a second messenger used in signal transduction in a wide variety of bacteria cyclic di gmp is not known to be used by archaea and has only been observed in eukaryotes in dictyostelium. Cyclic di gmp c di gmp is a global bacterial second messenger that controls a wide range of cellular processes that contribute to surface adaptation biofilm formation cell cycle progression and. In many bacterial species the second messenger cyclic di gmp c di gmp negatively regulates flagellar motility and in some cases virulence c di gmp was previously shown to repress motility of c difficile recent evidence indicates that flagellar gene expression is tightly linked with expression of the genes encoding the two c difficile toxins tcda and tcdb which are key virulence .
