Interaction Information:

Comment The addition of GlcNAc (N-acetylglucosamine) and the GlcNAc-containing polymer peptidoglycan (exogenous peptidoglycan, originating from commensal Gram-positive bacteria) to P. aeruginosa results in enhanced production of the virulence factors pyocyanin, elastase and Pseudomonas quinolone signal, PQS (2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4-quinolone).
