Abstract

The first 'International Symposium on c-di-GMP Signaling in Bacteria' (March 22 - 25, 2015, Harnack-Haus, Berlin, Germany) brought together 131 molecular microbiologists from 17 countries to discuss recent progress in our knowledge of bacterial nucleotide second messenger signaling. While the focus was on signal input, synthesis, degradation and the striking diversity of the modes of action of the current second messenger paradigm, i.e. c-di-GMP, also 'classics' like cAMP and (p)ppGpp were presented in novel facets and more recent 'newcomers' such as c-di-AMP and c-AMP-GMP made an impressive appearance. A number of clear trends emerged during the 30 talks, on the 71 posters and in the lively discussions, including (i) c-di-GMP control of the activities of various ATPases and phosphorylation cascades; (ii) extensive cross-talk between c-di-GMP and other nucleotide second messenger signaling pathways; and (iii) a stunning number of novel effectors for nucleotide second messengers that surprisingly include some long-known master regulators of developmental pathways. Overall, the conference made it amply clear that second messenger signaling is currently one of the most dynamic fields within molecular microbiology with major impact ranging from human health to microbial ecology.
