- Streptococcus Family (e.g. Streptococcus pneumonia), Competence Stimulating Peptides (CSP) , CSP binds to membrane protein ComD causes phosphorylation of ComE that binds to the promoter pCom (from COMAB, COMCDE and COMX operon)
- Staphylococcus Family (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), Small autoinducing peptides (AIPs), AIPs bind to the AgrC receptor (histidine kinase) causes phosphorylation of ArgA that drives transcription of pArg.
