Özet

AimsQuorum sensing (QS) is a cell-cell communication system used by a broad spectrum of pathogenic bacteria to control the expression of their virulence genes. The interruption of QS systems of pathogenic bacteria has been considered as a novel way to fight bacterial diseases. In this study, trans-anethole, the main component of anise (Pimpinella anisum) oil was examined for its QS inhibitor (QSI) potential in an attempt to identify novel QSI compound effective against opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
