ANTI - QUORUM SENSING ACTIVITY OF PISTACIA ATLANTICA METHANOLIC EXTRACT AGAINST PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA PA O1
23 till 25 August 2016، Tehran - Iran
Presentation Type: Speech
Background and Aim: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a multidrug resistant pathogen and an important cause of nosocomial infections. Quorum - sensing (QS) is a process which regulates production of many virulence factors including pigment production and biofilm f ormation essential for establishment of chronic infections. We evaluated the inhibitory activity of some native plant extracts on biofilm formation and pigment production by P. aeruginosa PAO1.
