Abstract: 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…
