Nowadays there is rising threat of multi-drug resistant bacteria mainly occurring due to the indiscriminate use of antibiotics. The bacteria tend to aggregate on many surfaces forming 3D structures called biofilms which are akin to the tissue organization of higher organisms. These biofilms help the bacteria regarding the spread of antibiotic resistance and increase in their pathogenicity. These biofilms are maintained by a signalling network known as quorum signalling. QS is dependent upon the presence of auto & trans-inducers which affect bacterial transcription. Hence the aim of many researchers is to inhibit QS. In this regard, medicinal plants have become important and the aim of this review is to highlight the role of QS in biofilm formation and the plants which can inhibit QS. Proper identification of plants having such roles could be a potential strategy to target multi drug resistant bacteria in future studies.
