This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Biofilms are the slimy cities some microbes form when they invade a surface. Conventional cleaning products are generally good at breaking up biofilms. But they tend to be harsh on the environment. And while natural products are a good alternative, it takes multiple enzymes to break up the strong polymers that make bacteria stick. But researchers are confident that a natural solution does exist. One team searched the forest floor in the Netherlands for microbes that might produce an all-in-one biofilm-busting enzyme. To coax those microbes out, they enriched forest litter with an especially tough biopolymer produced by forest bacteria: Acidobacteria. Microbes that could thrive in that environment likely produced enzymes strong enough to degrade the biopolymer blend. Analyses indicated the predominance of four bacterial phyla. More importantly, they revealed the main type of enzyme these bacteria secreted: glycoside hydrolases..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.
