From: Nanoparticles as Efflux Pump and Biofilm Inhibitor to Rejuvenate Bactericidal Effect of Conventional Antibiotics

Fig. 1

Use of metal nanoparticles as an efflux pump inhibitor to impede extrusion of quorum-sensing signaling molecules (red filled circle) outside bacterial cells with the help of metal nanoparticles (yellow filled circle) to block efflux pump (filled cylinder) resulting in reduced binding of signaling molecule to its receptor (empty cylinder) and hindrance in biofilm formation
