Jingxian Yang and colleagues have discovered that agr (quorum sensing) induction reduces expression of tarM (which encodes a glycosyltransferase responsible for modification of the major S. aureus phage receptor). This allows lytic phage Stab20 to infect and kill S. aureus, shedding light on the cross-species communication impacting phage susceptibility in S. aureus.
