Biofilm has a primary role in the pathogenesis of diseases and in the attachment of multicellular organisms to a fouled surface. Because of that, the control of bacterial biofilms has been identified as an important target. In the present study, five lipid compounds isolated from soft coral Eunicea sp. and three terpenoids together with a mixture of sterols from Eunicea fusca collected at the Colombian Caribbean Sea showed different effectiveness against biofilm formation by three marine…

Natural and Enantiopure Alkylglycerols as Antibiofilms Against Clinical Bacterial Isolates and Quorum Sensing Inhibitors of Chromobacterium violaceum ATCC 12472
Alkylglycerols (AKGs) are focused on because of their recently discovered quorum sensing inhibition (QSI) ability and antibiofilm potential and suggest that AKGs could be promising candidates for further studies on preventing antimicrobial resistance.

Inhibition of quorum sensing by compounds from two Eunicea species and synthetic saturated alkylglycerols
Background: the emergence of bacterial resistance has led to a search for new natural products as alternatives starting points to prevent and control diseases caused by microorganisms. Among the
A Comparative Study of the Susceptibility of Listeria Species to Sanitizer Treatments When Grown under Planktonic and Biofilm Conditions.
The susceptibility of persistent Listeria isolates to a selection of sanitizers was investigated, and a quaternary ammonium compound-based sanitizer was the biocide most effective against planktonic bacteria.
Rapid and solitary production of mono-rhamnolipid biosurfactant and biofilm inhibiting pyocyanin by a taxonomic outlier Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain CR1.
The environmental outlier P. aeruginosa strain CR1 can be used for the industrial production of biotechnologically important mono-RLs and PYO, which could efficiently inhibit biofilm formation by Bacillus species.
Marine invertebrates and particularly their extracts are widely studied because these species represent a potential biological source of new molecules with biological activity. This study presents
Antibiofilm and antivirulence properties of chitosan-polypyrrole nanocomposites to Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
The present study showed that highly stable CS-PPy NCs act as a potent antibiofilm and antivirulence drug for the treatment of P. aeruginosa infection.
Synthesis, In Silico, and In Vitro Evaluation of Long Chain Alkyl Amides from 2-Amino-4-Quinolone Derivatives as Biofilm Inhibitors
Docking scores and molecular dynamics simulations of the complexes of the tested compounds within the active sites of proteins related to quorum sensing had good correlation with the experimental results, suggesting the diminution of biofilm formation induced by these compounds could be related to the inhibition of these proteins.
Purification, Characterization, and Biocatalytic and Antibiofilm Activity of a Novel Dextranase from Talaromyces sp.
Dextranase is a useful enzyme that catalyzes the degradation of dextran to low-molecular-weight fractions, which have many critical commercial and clinical applications. Endophytic fungi represent a
Extracted chitosan disrupts quorum sensing mediated virulence factors in Urinary tract infection causing pathogens
The chitosan extracted from the marine crab Portunus sanguinolentus was screened for its ability to inhibit the QS‐signaling molecules of P. aeruginosa and S. marcescens and showed significant inhibition of severalQS‐dependent virulence factors.


Lipopeptide biosurfactants from Paenibacillus polymyxa inhibit single and mixed species biofilms

Terpenoids of plant origin inhibit morphogenesis, adhesion, and biofilm formation by Candida albicans
The antibiofilm potential of terpenoids, which need to be further explored as therapeutic strategy against biofilm associated infections of C. albicans, is demonstrated.
Anti-biofilm potential of a glycolipid surfactant produced by a tropical marine strain of Serratia marcescens
A tropical marine bacterium isolated from the hard coral, Symphyllia sp. was identified as Serratia marcescens on the basis of morphological, biochemical and 16S rDNA analysis. The bacterium showed
Effects of natural biofilms on settlement of plantigrades of the mussel Mytilus coruscus
Biotics isolated from the biofilms grown on natural and abiotic surfaces were shown to be effective inducers of plantigrade settlement, and may be used to enhance settlement of plantsigrades for the Chinese aquaculture industry.
Mini-review: Inhibition of biofouling by marine microorganisms
Epibiotic microorganisms associated with marine algae and invertebrates have a high antifouling (AF) potential, which can be used to solve biofouling problems in industry, however, more information about the production of AF compounds by marine microorganisms in situ and their mechanisms of action needs to be obtained.

The development of small molecules that inhibit and/or disperse bacterial biofilms of P. aeruginosa in particular are highlighted and the rational design approaches as well as synthetic methodologies along with biological studies has been accounted.
Detection of quorum sensing systems of bacteria isolated from fouled marine organisms
The detection and identification of AHLs was conducted using the microbial biosensor Escherichia coli and GC–MS and HPLC-MS analyses and it was found that all isolated marine strains had quorum sensing systems mediated by either N-butanoyl homoserine lactone or N-hexanoyL homoserines lactone and in some cases by both.
