Abstract

An Enterococcus faecalis plasmid, pAM373, has a high frequency of transfer in a liquid medium when induced by a recipient-produced sex pheromone, cAM373. The sex pheromone inhibitor against cAM373, termed iAM373, was isolated from a culture supernatant of E. faecalis harboring pAM377 (=pAM373::Tn917), and its structure was identified as a heptapeptide, H-Ser-Ile-Phe-Thr-Leu-Val-Ala-OH.
