Evidence that halogenated furanones from Delisea pulchra inhibit acylated homoserine lactone (AHL)-mediated gene expression by displacing the AHL signal from its receptor protein.
Instead, the bacteria conserve their resources by making other chemicals, called acylated homoserine lactones, or AHLs, which cost much less energy to produce, Hmelo said.
A receptor protein from the LuxR family of transcriptional regulators, upon binding an acylated homoserine lactone compound, interacts with the lux box, modulating the activity of the promoter.
