Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen, which causes numerous infections and can adopt a versatile lifestyle. During chronic infection, P. aeruginosa becomes established as a bacterial community known as a biofilm. Biofilm formation results from the production of a matrix mainly comprised of exopolysaccharides. P. aeruginosa possesses several gene clusters which contribute to the formation of the matrix, including the pel genes. Among the pel genes, pelC encodes an outer membrane… CONTINUE READING
