The antibiofilm and QS inhibition property of CAB is revealed, which is an important alternative treatment measure against streptococcal biofilm formation in S. pyogenes.
Phylogenetic characterization of culturable bacterial diversity associated with the mucus and tissue of the coral Acropora digitifera from the Gulf of Mannar.
It is demonstrated for the first time that actinomycetes existing within corals also have potential antibacterial activity, which indicates that, in addition to mucus, bacteria within the tissue of corals might defend the coral host against pathogens.
