Studies of the biofilm life cycle can identify novel targets and strategies for improving biofilm control measures. Of particular interest are dispersal events, where a subpopulation of cells is released from the biofilm community to search out and colonize new surfaces. Recently, the simple gas and ubiquitous biological signaling molecule nitric oxide (NO) was identified as a key mediator of biofilm dispersal conserved across microbial species. Here, we review the role and mechanisms of NO… CONTINUE READING
