Abstract

Inclusion complex formation between cyclodextrin and autoinducer of gram negative bacteria in aqueous solution was investigated by 1D 1H-NMR and ROESY spectra. An inhibitioneffect was observed on autoinducer activities of quorum sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa by adding cyclodextrins to the bacterial culture medium.
