  1. Enzymatic degradation of quorum-sensing signals to decrease bacterial phytopathogenicity

    SBC: Phyllotech, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Quorum sensing (QS) allows bacterial populations to coordinate gene expression in a cell density dependent manner and plays a significant role in the onset of pathogenesis and biofilm development. In many Gram-negative bacteria, QS is mediated by signaling molecules called N-acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs). We recently identified an AHL acylase from P. syringae which can enzymatically degrade and ...
