Iron-depletion prevents biofilm formation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa through twitching motility and quorum sensing

uni, YunWang, RuiAn, Mao-MaoBei-Bei, Liang

Influence of iron-depletion on twitching motility and quorum sensing (QS) system in P. aeruginosa was evaluated. The results demonstrated iron-depletion can retard biofilm formation and increase the twitching motility and expression of QS-related genes, suggesting a potential interaction between twitching motility and QS system in P. aeruginosa biofilm formation.
