I reread the Antibacterial Agents chapter from the course book;
Patrick, G. L. (2009) An Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry, New York, Oxford University Press.
They are cheeky little things, those bacteria.
I was particularly looking for articles from Medicinal Chemistry journals, however I found this one from the "one stop search" at the OU library;
Kalia, Vipin Chandra (2013) ‘Quorum sensing inhibitors: An overview’, Biotechnology Advances, 31(2), pp. 224–245.
It's quite a lot of reading, but it seems pretty comprehensive for a review of the mechanisms.
