FIGURE 2: Some hypothetical scenarios on interference with quorum protection.

Top panel: depicts molecules (e.g. EDTA) that bind the quorum protection molecule, rendering them ineffective in quorum protection.

Middle panel: depicts blocking of the cellular receptor of quorum protection molecules.

Bottom panel: depicts a blue microbe competing for and depleting the quorum protection molecules needed by the yellow microbe.
