The Role of Intrinsic Noise in Origin of Quorum Sensing

ABSTRACT

Many biological phenomena about quorum sensing in bacteria are driven by experimentally and mathematically in the last few decades. Symbiosis, virulence etc. are the major area in which these theoretical models work well. But no specific origin was established so far which can explain quorum sensing itself. This weakly nonlocal fluid dynamical model of bacterial communication system introduces a pancake model which involves the intrinsic noise of the system to explain the origin of quorum sensing. The internal structure of quorum sensing analogues to Zeldovich model and origin of internal noise in this mechanism is responsible for quorum sensing.
