Figure 3

Adhesion of EAEC strain 340-1 to pre-conditioned HeLa cells. Frame A describes the adhesion assay employing host cells pre-conditioned by the adherence of EACF strain 205. Frame B shows the parallel assay that was carried out in the absence of washing step. Bacterial cells of EACF 205 adhered to HeLa cells and inactivated by antibiotics still held the capability to boost EAEC adherence.
