Formation of dense, highly hydrated biofilm structures pose a risk for public and environmental health. Extracellular polymeric substances encompassing biofilms offer 1000-fold greater resistance as compared to the planktonic cells. Using enzymes as anti-biofouling agents, will improve penetration of antimicrobials and increase susceptibility of biofilms to… CONTINUE READING
