Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a virulent bacterium that secretes a variety of virulence factors that aid in establishing infections in individuals. Allicin, derived from garlic, has been shown to inhibit virulence factor production and biofilm formation in P. aeruginosa. However, the mechanisms underlying the allicin-mediated regulation of P. aeruginosa virulence remain unclear. In this study, we investigated the possible mechanisms underlying allicin-mediated virulence regulation in P. aeruginosa… CONTINUE READING
