Quorum sensing: Researchers examine bacteria communication

European researchers at Linköping University in Sweden are showing how bacteria control processes in human cells through a process called quorum sensing. This phenomenon is where bacteria talk to each other via molecules they themselves produce and is an important process during their proliferation. The study, whose results were published in the journal PLOS Pathogens, was made possible thanks to grants from the European Science foundation, TraPPs Euromembrane project, the Swedish Research Council, the King Gustaf V 80-Year Foundation, and the Faculty of Health Sciences, Linköping University.
