    Finding a mate: Diatoms use chemical signals to sense the presence of and find their mating partners. When the metabolic profiles of sexually active and inactive cells were compared, a highly up-regulated metabolite generated in the attracting mating type was identified as di-L-prolyl diketopiperazine, the first diatom pheromone.
