Lee, J, Jayaraman, A and Wood, TK (2007) Indole is an inter-species biofilm signal mediated by SdiA.BMC Microbiol. 7:42

Abstract

As a stationary phase signal, indole is secreted in large quantities into rich medium by Escherichia coli and has been shown to control several genes (e.g., astD, tnaB, gabT), multi-drug exporters, and the pathogenicity island of E. coli; however, its impact on biofilm formation has not been well-studied.
