Characterization of N-Acyl Homoserine Lactones in Vibrio tasmaniensis LGP32 by a Biosensor-Based UHPLC-HRMS/MS Method
AbstractSince the discovery of quorum sensing (QS) in the 1970s, many studies have demonstrated that Vibrio species coordinate activities such as biofilm formation, virulence, pathogenesis, and bioluminescence, through a large group of molecules called N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs). However, despite the extensive knowledge on the involved molecules and the biological processes controlled by QS in a few selected Vibrio strains, less is known about the overall diversity of AHLs produced by a broader range of environmental strains. To investigate the prevalence of QS capability of Vibrio environmental strains we analyzed 87 Vibrio spp. strains from the Banyuls Bacterial Culture Collection (WDCM911) for their ability to produce AHLs. This screening was based on three biosensors, which cover a large spectrum of AHLs, and revealed that only 9% of the screened isolates produced AHLs in the defined experimental conditions. Among these AHL-producing strains, Vibrio tasmaniensis LGP32 is a well-known pathogen of bivalves. We further analyzed the diversity of AHLs produced by this strain using a sensitive bioguided UHPLC-HRMS/MS approach (Ultra-High-Performance Liquid Chromatography followed by High-Resolution tandem Mass Spectrometry) and we identified C10-HSL, OH-C12-HSL, oxo-C12-HSL and C14:1-HSL as QS molecules. This is the first report that documents the production of AHL by Vibrio tasmaniensis LGP32. View Full-Text
