11_11b/2010Inside Cover: Enzymic Disruption of N-Aroyl-l-homoserine Lactone-Based Quorum Sensing (ChemBioChem 11/2010)

The inside cover picture shows the dizinc lactonase from Bacillus thuringiensis poised to cut the communicating string of a tin can telephone, and Pieter Bruegel's depiction of the Tower of Babel. On p. 1535 ff., W. Fast et al. demonstrate the ability of this lactonase to readily hydrolyze N-aroyl-l-homoserine lactones, molecules used by Rhodopseudomonas palustris to communicate during quorum-sensing (Image by B.
