Rhamnolipids are bacterial biosurfactants produced by Pseudomonas spp. These compounds have been shown to present several interesting biological activities, restricting the growth of Bacillus subtilis and showing zoosporicidal activity on zoosporic phytopathogens. It has been suggested that the interaction with the membrane could ultimately be responsible for these actions. Therefore, it is of great interest to gain insight into the molecular mechanism of the interaction of purified rhamnolipids with the vari…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
