Title:
Chelate chemistry governs ion-specific stiffening of Bacillus subtilis B-1 and Azotobacter vinelandii biofilms 
Abstract:
Unwanted formation of bacterial biofilms can cause problems in both the medical sector and industrial settings. However, removing them from surfaces remains an ongoing challenge since biofilm bacteria efficiently protect themselves from external influences such as mechanical shear forces by embedding themselves into a matrix of extracellular polymeric substances. Here, we discuss microscopic principles, which are responsible for alterations in the viscoelastic properties of biofilms upon contact...    »
