Biofilm production, quorum sensing, and association with decidual cells in GBS
Some papers of interest in this area:
Ulrich et al 2005 One-component systems dominate signal transduction in prokaryotes
Interplay of each system in biofilm formation:
|:————-:|:————-:| |Cov R/S|Dlt A/C| |Cia R/C|Rgf A/C|
More on the Rgf Operon - Al Safadi et al 2011 Two-Component System Rgf A/C Activates the fbsB Gene Encoding Major Fibrinogen-Binding Protein in Highly Virulent CC17 Clone Group B Streptococcus
Review by Waters & Bassler 2005 Quorum Sensing: Cell-to-Cell Communication in Bacteria
More on GBS Biofilms - Kaur et al 2009 Biofilm formation in clinical isolates of group B streptococci from north India
Patients with symtomatic low biofilm production is a negative predictor for disease?
CFCS –> what are the risidual contents of the CFCS? One way to address this would be HPLC.
