Restricted access - publisher's policyBacterial pathogens coordinate the expression of multiple virulence factors and formation of biofilms in cell density dependent manner, through a phenomenon named quorum sensing (QS). Protected in the biofilm community, ...
Layer-by-Layer coating of aminocellulose and quorum quenching acylase on silver nanoparticles synergistically eradicate bacteria and their biofilms Asenova Ivanova, Aleksandra; Ivanova, Kristina Dimitrova; Tied, Antje; Heinze, Thomas; Tzanov, Tzanko (2020-04-24)
Open AccessThe emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and the failure of the existing antibacterial therapeutics call for development of novel treatment strategies. Furthermore, the formation of bacterial biofilms restricts drug ...
