Determination of Whether Quorum Quenching Is a Common Activity in Marine Bacteria by Analysis of Cultivable Bacteria and Metagenomic Sequences

I thought that some of you might be interested in this article. It’s interesting and there are a lot of seemingly good references and technical information.

The abundance of quorum quenching (QQ) activity was evaluated in cultivable bacteria obtained from oceanic and estuarine seawater and compared with the frequency of QQ enzyme sequences in the available marine metagenomic collections. The possible role of the high QQ activity found among marine bacteria is discussed.
