Interpretive Summary: Pseudomonas sp. strain CMR12a produces phenazine-1-carboxamide and two cyclic lipopeptides, sessilin and viscosinamide. In this highlight of the recent work with this strain by Monica Höfte of Ghent University, Belgium, I review recent studies showing that the metabolites produced by CMR12a interact and influence the activity of one another in biological control and induced systemic resistance.
