Quorum sensing controls a number of key processes in growth, reproduction and virulence of many gram-negative bacteria via signalling molecules or autoinducers. It can control, for instance, the production of pectic enzymes which are virulence factors in disease. Pseudomonas fluorescens 5064 produces biosurfactants which are important for bacterial establishment on the plant surface prior to causing disease in broccoli. The aim of this paper was to determine if biosurfactant production in this… CONTINUE READING
