Bacterial quorum sensing signal molecules called N-acylhomoserine lactone (AHL) controls the expression of virulence determinants in many Gram-negative bacteria. We determined AHL production in 22 Aeromonas strains isolated from various infected sites from patients (bile, blood, peritoneal fluid, pus, stool and urine). All isolates produced the two principal AHLs, N-butanoylhomoserine lactone (C4-HSL) and N-hexanoyl homoserine lactone (C6-HSL). Ten isolates also produced additional AHLs. This… Expand
Production and Degradation of N-Acylhomoserine Lactone Quorum Sensing Signal Molecules in Bacteria Isolated from Activated Sludge
TLDR
N-Acylhomoserine lactones function as quorum-sensing signaling molecules in many Gram-negative bacteria and are associated with purple pigment production in AHL reporter strains Chromobacterium violaceum CV026 and VIR07. Expand
Production of N-acyl Homoserine Lactones and Virulence Factors of Waterborne Aeromonas hydrophila
TLDR
Investigation of the production of N-acyl-homoserine lactone (AHL) signal molecules and some virulence factors by waterborne Aeromonas hydrophila found that quorum sensing signal molecules is common among the strains that were examined, and there seems to some relationships between quorumensing signal production and virulence Factors in A. hydrophILA.

N-Acylhomoserine Lactones (AHLs), QseB/C Gene Detection, Virulence Factors and Antibiotics Resistance of Aeromonas hydrophila
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrated that there is a presence of QseB/C genes in A. hydrophila and also produces AHLs molecule and virulence factors which makes it a serious threat to public health. Expand
Unusual Multiple Production of N-Acylhomoserine Lactones a by Burkholderia sp. Strain C10B Isolated from Dentine Caries
TLDR
In this study, the isolation of a QS bacterial isolate C10B from dentine caries is reported, which was able to produce N-acylhomoserine lactones (AHLs) and was further identified as a member of Burkholderia, an opportunistic pathogen. Expand
Pantoea sp . strain A 4 , a new plant-associated bacterium exhibiting quorum sensing activity
Quorum sensing (QS) is a method of bacterial cell-tocell communication to coordinate adaptive behaviour. N-Acyl homoserine lactone (AHL) is the most studied signalling molecule among proteobacteria.Expand
Draft Genome Sequence of an Aeromonas sp. Strain 159 Clinical Isolate That Shows Quorum-Sensing Activity
TLDR
In the draft genome of strain 159, luxI and luxR homologue genes were found to be located at contig 47, and these genes are believed to be important for the quorum-sensing system present in this pathogen. Expand
Whole-Genome Analysis of Aeromonas hydrophila Strain 187, Exhibiting Quorum-Sensing Activity
TLDR
The genome of pathogenic Aeromonas hydrophila strain 187 is reported, which possesses a QS gene responsible for signaling molecule N-acyl homoserine lactone (AHL) synthesis and has been found to be located at contig 36. Expand
Diverse Profiles of N-acyl Homoserine L-Lactones, Biofilm, Virulence Genes and Integrons in Food-Borne Aeromonas Isolates.
TLDR
Aeromonas food isolates were highly variable in their biofilm forming abilities with majority of them as weak biofilm producers in 2 different media, TSB and M9 minimal medium supplemented with 0.4% glucose. Expand

TLDR
All Burkholderia species investigated so far employ quorum-sensing (QS) systems that rely on N-acyl-homoserine lactone (AHL) signal molecules to express certain phenotypic traits in a population density-dependent manner, and these regulatory systems represent attractive targets for the development of novel therapeutics.

P. aeruginosa quorum-sensing systems and virulence.
TLDR
Through the regulation of multiple factors and the production of 3O-C(12)-HSL, quorum-sensing systems have a significant effect on the virulence of the bacteria and also on how the host responds to P. aeruginosa infections. Expand

TLDR
This mini-review summarizes initial findings and discusses future perspectives of HSL-dependent quorum sensing in members of the Burkholderia cepacia complex. Expand
Quorum sensing in Aeromonas hydrophila and Aeromonas salmonicida: identification of the LuxRI homologs AhyRI and AsaRI and their cognate N-acylhomoserine lactone signal molecules
TLDR
Downstream of both ahyI and asaI is a gene with close homology to iciA, an inhibitor of chromosome replication in Escherichia coli, a finding which implies that in Aeromonas, cell division may be linked to quorum sensing. Expand
Possible virulence factors involved in bacteraemia caused by Aeromonas hydrophila.
Eighteen strains of Aeromonas hydrophila from patients with bacteraemia were investigated for possible virulence factors. Cytotoxin and haemolysin were produced by all strains, whereas choleraExpand

TLDR
Inactivation of the ahyI gene on the A. hydrophila chromosome abolishes C4-HSL production in azocasein assays and reduces the activity of all the exoprotease species seen in zymograms. Expand
The regulation of biofilm development by quorum sensing in Aeromonas hydrophila.
TLDR
Exposure of the A. hydrophila AH-1N biofilm to N-(3-oxodecanoyl)homoserine lactone, which inhibits exoprotease production in planktonic cells, had no effect on biofilm formation or architecture within the continuous-flow chamber. Expand

The ability of CV026 to respond to a series of synthetic AHL and N-acylhomocysteine thiolactone (AHT) analogues is explored, greatly extending the ability to detect a wide spectrum of AHL signal molecules. Expand

TLDR
The production of haemolysin and cytotoxin were closely related but the association between the enterotoxin and the cholera toxin-like factor was not significant and the exotoxin profiles of non-enteric isolates were more restricted. Expand
