In the past two years, the isolation of extracellular factors involved in the initiation of aerial mycelium formation, the identification of metabolic defects in certain developmental mutants, and the characterisation of three further bid genes and several γ-butyrolactone receptor genes have led to new ideas about the mechanisms that initiate aerial mycelium formation in Streptomyces. The emerging picture suggests the integration of numerous signals from both inside and outside the cell.

Additional Information: An erratum to this article has been published ( Unfortunately an error was introduced to the text during typesetting. The first sentence of the second paragraph under the heading “Intracellular metabolic signals” (page 660) should read as follows: Ochi [39,40] has argued that the decrease in the GTP pool that occurs at the onset of morphological differentiation contributes to the induction of aerial mycelium formation in streptomycetes.
