Quorum sensing (QS) is a system of stimuli and responses in bacterial cells governed by their population density, through which they regulate genes that control virulence factors and biofilm formation. Despite considerable research on QS and the discovery of new antibiotics, QS-controlled biofilm formation by microorganisms in clinical settings has remained(More)
Inter and intracellular communication in bacteria, which is known as quorum sensing (QS), is mediated by small diffusible signaling molecules known as autoinducers. QS regulates various virulence factors responsible for pathogenesis. Increasing resistance of microorganisms against traditional antibiotics has turned the focus towards the QS as it exerts less(More)
