In the experimental mouse model, the designer adhesin
protein spontaneously inserts into the plasma membrane of the stem cells with no cytotoxity, and then directs the modified cells to the heart after transplant.
Characterization of the N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity involved in the biosynthesis of the Staphylococcus epidermidis polysaccharide intercellular adhesin
According to previous research, virulence factors include genes encoding iron acquisition systems (iron, iuc), adhesins
(fim, afal, sfa, iha), toxins (cnf1, hlyA, set, astA, usp), and biofilms (pgaABCD).
(41-44) Our observations suggest the potential of type 1 fimbrial adhesin
as promising candidates for the development of new therapeutic strategies to prevent complications related to UPEC colonization.
is the surface of some macromolecular structure components in mostly bacteria, mainly fimbriae adhesin
and afimbrial adhesion, and basis of biological engraftment which is the precondition of bacteria infection usually.
Bacterial attachment is an initial and a critical step for the establishment of infection that involves bacterial adhesins
and host receptors.
Schapendonk et al., "SgrA, a nidogen-binding LPXTG surface adhesin
implicated in biofilm formation, and EcbA, a collagen binding MSCRAMM, are two novel adhesins
of hospital-acquired Enterococcus faecium," Infection and Immunity, vol.
Furthermore, the positioning of the fimS invertible element changes to a more Phase-ON orientation and more type 1 pili are produced following the FimH tip adhesin
binding to mannose, suggesting that type 1 piliated UPEC cells change physiologically after attachment to the mannose receptors to maintain the adherence through a sustained commitment to type 1 pilus expression.
The blood group antigen binding adhesin
(babA), a 78 KDa outer membrane protein encoded by the babA2 gene, binds to Lewis b antigens and ABO antigen [18,19].
