The team, led by Professor Greg Cook, found that in such conditions the bacterium is able to quickly switch its cellular metabolism from a primarily oxygen-based one over to one that uses fermentation for energy production instead and this metabolic mode depends on the production and recycling of molecular hydrogen, a high-energy fuel and diffusible gas.
Based on the observation that the lactones are diffusible on solid media, and that the lactonase activity is inversely proportional to the color intensity, a light blue pigment of the biosensor was observed to 3-O-C6-HSL and 3-O-C12-HSL when they were tested with the biosensor strain NTL4.

Comparison of inhibition halos sizes of different extracts may not be used to determine relative antimicrobial potencies, since a more diffusible but less active extract could give a larger diameter than a non-diffusible but more active extract (LUND et al.
