N-Hexanoyl-L-homoserine lactone(Cat No.:M140190) is a type of short-chain N-acyl homoserine lactone (AHL). AHLs are crucial signaling molecules in the quorum sensing system of Gram-negative bacteria. They facilitate intercellular communication and information exchange between bacteria, allowing them to coordinate their behavior as a population. Additionally, AHLs also play a role in the communication between eukaryotic plants and prokaryotic bacteria. They act as mediators in the cross-talk between these organisms, influencing various biological processes. N-Hexanoyl-L-homoserine lactone is one of the many AHLs involved in these communication networks.
