Here we investigated the extent to which QS-II can also regulate flagellin expression in STEC and examined the potential for coordinate regulation between two QS systems.
The medium was then replaced with OptiMEM, and the cells were incubated for 30 min with or without APO (50, 100, and 200 [micro]g/mL) or zVAD, before treatment with poly (dA:dT2 [micro]g/mL), ATP (5mM), or nigericin (10 [micro]M) for 1 h or silica crystals (150 [micro]g/mL) or flagellin (1.5 [micro]g/mL) for 3h.

Among them, peptides are the most important phytotoxic that has a different distribution among the different groups of microorganisms, for illustration hairpin, flagellin, endo-xylanase, syringomycin, NLP and a fungal enzyme such as pectinase and esterase, are the most important of this group.
(31) It has been well documented that these ingredients resulted in the promotion of microbiota encroachment and increased levels of proinflammatory flagellin and lipopolysaccharide (LPS), leading to a change in microbiota composition and intestinal inflammation.
The fusion protein also contains flagellin (FliC), a peptide found in nearly all bacteria with flagella (lash-like appendages) that acts as a strong catalyst when administered together with other antigens or foreign substances that induce an immune response in the body.

Furthermore, recent studies suggest activation of innate immune system by recruitment of effector molecules (inflammasomes, peptidoglycans, TNF-[alpha], IL-1[beta], and flagellin) in response to LPS infiltration [37].
