- ... Although the level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is altered upon the formation of bacterial biofilm, the relationship between ROS alteration and biofilm formation is still unclear. The aim of the present study is to use Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) as a model organism to examine whether ROS have an effect on the biofilm formation. After eliminating ROS by treatment with NAD(P)H oxi ...
