Inhibition of Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms : new molecular strategies targeting cyclic-di-GMP metabolism

Biofilms formed by bacterial pathogens are responsible of more than 70% of all infections in developed countries and are less sensitive to treatments with antimicrobial agents. The ubiquitous second messenger 3', 5'-cyclic diguanylic acid (c-di-GMP) is used in most bacteria to control the switch to the biofilm lifestyle; c-di-GMP has no counterpart in… CONTINUE READING
