cis-2-Decenoic acid may be used to study its cytotoxic effect on the human HepG2 cell line. It has also been used to study its synergistic anti-spirochetal effect.
cis-2-Decenoic acid is a fatty acid messenger (signaling molecule) produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It possesses anti-biofilm property and converts most of the cells to planktonic (free-swimming) phenotype. cis-2-Decenoic acid retains the susceptibility of the bacteria towards antimicrobial agents. It does not exhibit any toxicity towards human cells and thus, might be used for treating biofilm-associated infections. cis-2-Decenoic acid is considered active even in nano-molar ranges. It mediates the transition of dormant P. aeruginosa and Escherichia coli to their biologically active state without affecting the number of cells. cis-2-Decenoic acid is effective against E. coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae mixed-species biofilms when used along with antimicrobial agents.
