Biof­ilm:

> 3D-str­uctured commun­ities attached to a solid surface
> Embedded in an exopol­ysa­cch­aride matrix
> Biofilm formation is not random - follows specific pattern of succession
> Availa­bility of bacterial species
> Coaggr­egation pairings
> Cell-cell intera­ctions

Types of Bacterial Intera­cti­ons:

Neut­ral­ism:
No effect on each other
Comp­eti­tion:
2 popula­tions compete for the same nutrients
Comm­ens­ali­sm:
1 benefits from the other with benefactor remaining unaffected
Mutu­ali­sm:
Both popula­tions benefits
Symb­ios­is:
Obligatory intera­ctions
Prot­oco­ope­rat­ions:
Facult­ative intera­ctions
Synt­rop­hy:
Cross-­feeding
Syne­rgi­sm:
Enhanced production of a certain products
Amme­nsa­lism:
1 population has an indirect negative impact on another
Pred­ati­on:
1 organism consumed by another
Para­sit­ism:
1 organism invaded intrac­ell­ularly by another

Inte­rac­tio­ns:­Coa­ggr­egating Pairs of Organi­sms:

 

Biofilm Formation and Content:

Biofilm Formation and Roles of Intera­cti­ons:

Increase in Mass of Biofilm:

Comm­uni­cation in Biofilm:

> Genetic expression is different in biofilm bacteria when compared to planktonic (free floating )bacteria
> Biofilm cells can coordinate behavior via interc­ellular "­com­mun­ica­tio­n" using bioche­mical signalling molecules
 

Quorum sensing:

- Involves regulation of expression of specific genes through accumu­lation of signaling compound that mediate interc­ellular commun­ication
- Dependent on cell density and mediated through signalling compounds
- Quorum sensing gives biofilms their distinct properties
Involved in the regulation of:
> Genetic competence
> Mating
> Bacter­iocin production
> Sporul­ation
> Stress response
> Virulence expression
> Biofilm formation
> Biolum­ine­scence

Bott­le-­Brush Format­ion:

Hetero­typ­ic:
- Strept­ococci with Fusob­act­erium, Bacter­oides, Actino­myces, Campyl­oba­cter

Homo­typ­ic:
- Eubac­terium yurii, Tanner­ella
Bott­le-­Brush in subgin­gival biofilm: Eubac­terium Yurii

Micr­ograph Max Listga­rten

Meta­bolic Relati­ons­hips:

Metabolic Relati­onships among oral bacteria within dental biofilm commun­ities,

Why Study Biofil­ms:

Know advers­aries in order to defeat them.
Develo­pment of treatment strategies
Interfere with cell-cell commun­ica­tions (intra­generic and interg­eneric)
