Aliivibrio fischeri is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium found globally in marine environments.
Autoinducers are signaling molecules that are produced in response to changes in cell-population density.
Bacteria (common noun bacteria, singular bacterium) is a type of biological cell.
A biofilm comprises any group of microorganisms in which cells stick to each other and often also to a surface.
Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism.
Carbon (from carbo "coal") is a chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6.
In organic chemistry, a carbonyl group is a functional group composed of a carbon atom double-bonded to an oxygen atom: C.
The cell (from Latin cella, meaning "small room") is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms.
Cell signaling (cell signalling in British English) is part of any communication process that governs basic activities of cells and coordinates all cell actions.
Cornell University is a private and statutory Ivy League research university located in Ithaca, New York.
Cyanogen bromide is the inorganic compound with the formula (CN)Br or BrCN.
Edman degradation, developed by Pehr Edman, is a method of sequencing amino acids in a peptide.
A flagellum (plural: flagella) is a lash-like appendage that protrudes from the cell body of certain bacterial and eukaryotic cells.
Gene expression is the process by which information from a gene is used in the synthesis of a functional gene product.
Lactonase (also acyl-homoserine lactonase) is a metalloenzyme, produced by certain species of bacteria, which targets and inactivates acylated homoserine lactones (AHLs).
Luciferase is a generic term for the class of oxidative enzymes that produce bioluminescence, and is usually distinguished from a photoprotein.
The Marangoni effect (also called the Gibbs–Marangoni effect) is the mass transfer along an interface between two fluids due to a gradient of the surface tension.
Methionine (symbol Met or M) is an essential amino acid in humans.
Myristyl aldehyde, also known as tetradecanal, is a reduced form of myristic acid.
In genetics, an operon is a functioning unit of DNA containing a cluster of genes under the control of a single promoter.
A pilus (Latin for 'hair'; plural: pili) is a hair-like appendage found on the surface of many bacteria.
Population density (in agriculture: standing stock and standing crop) is a measurement of population per unit area or unit volume; it is a quantity of type number density.
In biology, quorum sensing is the ability to detect and to respond to cell population density by gene regulation.
In organic chemistry and biochemistry, a side chain is a chemical group that is attached to a core part of the molecule called "main chain" or backbone.
