  • inhibition
  • AG showed inhibitory effects against the initial adhesion of S. epidermidis at concentrations of 1 000,100, 10 mg x L(-1), respectively,and inhibited metabolism of biofilm bacteria at the concentration of 31.25 mg x L(-1), and exhibited significantly inhibition against the biofilm morphology at the concentration of 250 mg x L(-1), while did not display inhibition against PIA formation at the concentration of 10 mg x L(-1).

  • formation
  • S. epidermidis biofilms were set up in vitro, erythromycin was acted as the positive control agent, XTT reduction assay was used to evaluate AG on the initial adhesion of S. epidermidis and bacterial metabolism within biofilm, microscope was applied to observe biofilm morphology, and Congo red assay was used to detect polysacchatide interc-ellular adhesion (PIA)formation when exposed to AG. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • AG could remarkably inhibit biofilm formation of S. epidermidis, although it was less potent than erythromycin. (sigmaaldrich.com)

  • Implications
  • Recent attention has appropriately focused on biofilm development on the catheter surface because biofilm has important implications for the pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention of catheter-related infection. (nih.gov)
  • Pyocyanin
  • Pyocyanin has been used in the clinical identification of this strain for over a century, but several years ago the Newman group demonstrated that the molecule also supports biofilm growth, raising the possibility that its degradation might offer a new route to inhibit biofilm development.

  • behavior
  • These methods have all contributed to recent advances in the understanding of the factors determining bacterial behavior and function within biofilms. (frontiersin.org)
  • When a cell switches to the biofilm mode of growth, it undergoes a phenotypic shift in behavior in which large suites of genes are differentially regulated. (medicalxpress.com)
