replication. The aim of this work is to summarize the contemporary state of knowledge with regard to bacterial stringent response, which is significant due to its involvement in the reactions of microorganisms to the effects of stress factors, with particular emphasis on this mechanism in bacteria interacting with plants. The activation of the stringent response in bacteria gives them a chance to colonize new niches and, to an extent, guarantees their survival, even in extreme conditions.
