Bacteria are capable of “communicating” their local population densities via a process termed quorum sensing (QS). Gram-negative bacteria use N-acylated L-homoserinelactones (AHLs), in conjunction with their cognate LuxR-type receptors, as their primary signalling circuit for QS. In this critical review, we examine AHLsignalling in Gram-negative bacteria with a primary focus on the design of non-natural AHLs, their structure-activity relationships, and their application in chemical biological approaches to study QS (72 references).
