Interaction Information:

Comment Quorum-sensing molecules have the potential to directly modulate the host immune system. AHL (acyl homoserine lactones) induced cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) production in host cells through activation of NF-(kappa)B. COX-2 expression was linked to production of Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), which has been shown to induce mucus secretion and promote vasodilation and edema.
