Inhibition of L. salivarius attachment to HeLa cells by the presence of GAGs of different origins. A) Relative adherence of the lactobacilli to HeLa cells co-incubated in the presence of 100 μg/ml of total GAGs extracted from HeLa and HT-29 cells and from commercially available, heterologous sources; n=9 ANOVA test **, p-value < 0.001; *, p-value < 0.05. B) Adhesion of L. salivarius Lv72 to HeLa cells co-incubated in the presence of increasing concentrations of HS (X), CS (▲) and a mixture of both (♦) extracted from HeLa cell cultures, n=9 ANOVA test **, p-value < 0.001; *, p-value < 0.05 vs adhesion of Lactobacillus salivarius Lv72 to HeLa cells without interferences.
