World’s first OSU scientists suggested to create antibacterial drugs from medicinal plants against the chemical communication between organisms.
The project of Anna Tolmacheva “Resource potential of medicinal plants of the Orenburg region as the source of a new class of compounds — inhibitors of the system, the quorum-sensing bacteria” was supported at the regional level. As the scientist explains, bacterial cells exist in the community like myself and use a complex system of intercellular chemical communication – Quorum sensing (QS) — to better adapt to changing environmental conditions.
QS controls a variety of important processes of vital activity of microorganisms, including such important for Biomedicine, such as the development of factors of virulence (ability to infect) antibiotic resistance and formation of biofilms (microorganisms attached to each other on any surface).
— A group of young scientists experimentally investigated medicinal plants of the Orenburg region as the source of a new class of compounds that suppress the course of physiological and physicochemical processes of bacteria, — says Anna .
