discovered just 3 decades ago and previously taken with skepticism, it has been
shown that quorum sensing is an integral part of bacterial survival and life
cycles. The importance of quorum sensing has not gone unnoticed; new studies
are popularly being done from both medical and industrial sides of
microbiology. By studying the biochemistry of
quorum sensing, a better understanding of how bacteria become
virulent can be obtained. Drugs that inhibit quorum sensing systems can help in
containing virulent factors and keep patients, like those with Cystic Fibrosis,
healthy. New drugs that target auto-inducers can provide a powerful solution to
antibiotic resistance, which can save lives as well as industrial live stock.
Manipulation of cell-to-cell communication can also result in a higher product
yield in microbiological industries, such as acetic acid. By combining QS
manipulation with genetic engineering and strain selection, a much higher
product yield can be reached. Quorum sensing provides the perfect explanation
for how industrial-products are regulated. It has been over 300 years since man
first saw bacteria through a microscope, and although science has increased
knowledge immeasurably since then, there still remains much to be seen.
