Functional amyloid fibrils in P. aeruginosa (Fap) are able to bind and retain quorum sensing molecules, suggesting that EGCG interferes with QS through structural remodeling of amyloid fibrils.

Nanoindentation studies showed that EGCG reduced the stiffness of biofilm containing Fap fibrils but not in biofilm with little Fap.
