N-(3-hydroxy-7-cis tetradecenoyl)-L-Homoserine lactone is a long-chain N-acyl-homoserine lactone (AHL) produced by some Gram-negative bacteria and is involved in quorum sensing.{33808} Quorum sensing enables bacteria to change gene expression based on cues from nearby bacteria and from eukaryotic hosts about nutrients, environmental conditions, or threats.{15399} Due to the benefit of quorum sensing for bacterial survival, quorum sensing molecules are potential targets for controlling bacterial infections.{13466} In mouse and human leukocyte immunoassays using LPS-stimulated macrophages, N-(3-hydroxy-7-cis tetradecenoyl)-L-homoserine lactone did not have an effect on cytokine or antibody production.{33809}
