    Abstract: Quorum sensing (QS) plays a vital role in controlling virulence in bacterial species. Vibrio cholerae, the main causative agent of cholera uses chemical signals to control virulence and biofilm formation. QS Always depend on the secretion and detection of signaling molecules known as auto inducers. Contrary to other bacteria that cause virulence at... Show More
