Halogenated furanones from marine red macroalgae Delisea pulchra were the first reported quenchers of quorum sensing (9, 10).
9) The furanones are thought to make less significant contributions to aroma due to their considerably higher aroma-detection thresholds, but they may influence the perception of oak lactone.

Technology 2: Compounds called furanones block the build-up of biofilms, layers that harbor bacteria and other microscopic life.
Halogenated furanones inhibit quorum sensing through accelerated LuxR turnover.
For example, red algae secrete halogenated furanones and enones that act as antagonists of acylated homoserine lactone signaling molecules present in biofilms.
