Important virulence properties is the ability to form biofilms (dental plaque) on tooth surfaces. Eradication of such biofilms is extremely difficult. We therefore screened a library of secondary metabolites from myxobacteria for their ability to damage biofilms of S. mutans. Results: Here we show that carolacton, a secondary metabolite isolated from Sorangium cellulosum, has high antibacterial ac
