ABSTRACT

Nucleotide-based second messengers transduce signals originating from both outside and inside the cell to adaptive responses accordingly. c-di-AMP is a newly established second messenger employed by many organisms. We summarize recent advances in bacterial c-di-AMP-mediated signaling, especially the interaction between c-di-AMP signaling and the host.
