Summary In recent years, researchers have discovered a new type of signaling mechanism based on cyclic di-GMP (c-di-GMP). This newly recognized second messenger is strongly associated with the transition between the motile and sessile states of many bacteria as well as the formation and dispersion of biofilms in many bacteria
