AIMS The goal of this work was to investigate the influence of DMSO, garlic extract and p-coumaric acid on bacterial quorum sensing (QS). METHODS AND RESULTS The decreases in the QS responses of QS reporter strains Escherichia coli pSB401 and pSB536, Agrobacterium tumefaciens NTL4, Chromobacterium violaceum 5999 and wt 494, Pseudomonas putida IsoF/gfp and environmental Pseudomonas chlororaphis were quantified in relation to growth inhibitory effects. DMSO showed no significant QS-specific… CONTINUE READING
