(Z)-2-decenoic acid (cis-2-Decenoic acid) is an unsaturated fatty acid produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (Z)-2-decenoic acid induces a dispersion response in biofilms formed by a range of gram-negative bacteria, including P. aeruginosa, and by gram-positive bacteria. (Z)-2-decenoic acid inhibits biofilm development.

How to use

In Vitro:

When added exogenously to P. aeruginosa PAO1 biofilms at a native concentration of 2.5 nM, (Z)-2-decenoic acid (cis-2-Decenoic acid) is shown to induce the dispersion of biofilm microcolonies.
