Abstract

The abundance of quorum quenching (QQ) activity was evaluated in cultivable bacteria obtained from oceanic and estuarine seawater and compared with the frequency of QQ enzyme sequences in the available marine metagenomic collections. The possible role of the high QQ activity found among marine bacteria is discussed.
