Quorum Sensing Inhibition to Combat P. aeruginosa Colonization of Cystic Fibrosis Patients

Senior Thesis Research for a B.S. in Biology at Randolph College

Figure 1: Bifurcated quorum sensing system in P. aeruginosa and how one subset of that system, las (red), imposes control over the other subset, rhl (blue).

Figure 2: The general motif seen in many quorum sensing systems and introduce the typical elements (e.g. autoinducer synthase ("S"), autoinducers ("A"), transcriptional activator protein ("R")).
