Quorum!

quorum sensing is a behavior ng microorganisms enabling them to communicate and establish their population is a certain area. its more of bacterial communication through the use of quorum sensing compounds like autoinducers and pheromones. these are concurrently associated with the formation of biofilms. scientists are looking for inhibitors para hindi sila makapagcommunicate and dumami. example is p. aeruginosa, occurs in low numbers in our body but due to quorum sensing dadami sila, magiging biofilm and pwedeng maging cause ng disease. so a solution to that is by the use of quorum sensing inhibitors and scientists are still in search of potential QSI's... ayun... 


- I can't believe I posted something like this sa isang thread sa G4M. Ha ha. Anyways, the thread is something about Biology yata. Ayun. God, I suddenly missed Microbiology..
