Characterization of cell-to-cell signaling-deficient Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains colonizing intubated patients.

Abstract

Cell-to-cell signaling involving N-acyl-homoserine lactone compounds termed autoinducers (AIs) is instrumental to virulence factor production and biofilm development by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In order to determine the importance of cell-to-cell signaling during the colonization of mechanically ventilated patients, we collected 442 P. aeruginosa pulmonary… (More)
