Özet

Introduction: Antipathogenic molecules target not the vital structures but the virulence factors of pathogenic microorganisms to prevent the development of an infection. Proteus mirabilis is a right candidate for testing antipathogenic molecules due to its distinctive features as an uropathogen such as spreading on urinary catheter surfaces by swarming motility, forming crystalline biofilm by intense urease activity and causing kidney stones.
