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.
How Delisea pulchra furanones
affect quorum sensing and swarming motility in Serratia liquefaciens MG1.
Wood preservation using furanones
derived from marine algae.
in strawberries: Evolution during ripening and postharvest shelf life.
Sulphides and furanones
from steam volatile oils of Allium fistulosum and Allium chinense.
Technology 2: Compounds called furanones
block the build-up of biofilms, layers that harbor bacteria and other microscopic life.
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.
Topics include ultrasonic cleaning-induced failures, palladium-based alloys, nitinol wires, strength improvement of titanium alloys, inhibiting microbial biofilm formation with brominated furanones
, and biodegradable adjunctive therapy for extremity wound infection reduction.
Washington, Dec 23 (ANI): Scientists from Syracuse University have created new brominated furanones
that may help to check deadly fungal infections.
