Many bacteria use quorum sensing to regulate the secretion of extracellular sticky slime.

Many bacteria use quorum sensing to regulate the secretion of extracellular sticky slime, is an integral part of the biofilm life. Interestingly, however, some species rotate on mucus production at high cell density, while others In this week’s it. In this week’s edition of the open-access journal PLoS Biology, Carey Nadell, Kevin Foster and colleagues show that by using an individual-based model biofilm growth it? examine why use different kinds quorum sensing.

EnormousOf Quorum Sensing in Bacterial Biofilmsbacteria are increasingly being recognized as a highly interactive organisms with complex social life critical to critical to their ability to disease. Especially many kinds inhabit dense surface bound communities called biofilms, in which they communicate and known to local cell density by a process as quorum sensing. Enormous efforts have been made to the understanding of the genetics and biochemistry of biofilm formation and quorum sensing dedicated, but how and why they occur remains virtually unexplored..
