Strategies to induce biofilm dispersal are of interest due to their potential to prevent biofilm formation and biofilm-related infections. Nitric oxide (NO), an important messenger molecule in biological systems, was previously identified as a signal for dispersal in biofilms of the model organism Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In the present study, the use of NO as an anti-biofilm agent more broadly was assessed. Various NO donors, at concentrations estimated to generate NO levels in the picomolar… CONTINUE READING
