Product name2-Heptyl-3-hydroxy-4-quinolone, Intercellular signal compound
DescriptionIntercellular signal compound.
- Pseudomonas quinolone signal
Quorum sensing signaling molecule used to induce and study the regulation of virulence genes. Quorum sensing is a signaling system used by bacteria to coordinate activity based upon their population density. The system involves the exchange of signaling molecules among bacteria via cell receptors.
Storage instructionsStore at Room Temperature. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C.
