Figure 1

Adherence of L. lactis expressing different surface proteins to desquamated nasal epithelial cells. L. lactis (pKS80), L. lactis (pKS80clfB+), L. lactis (pKS80sdrC+), L. lactis (pKS80sdrD+), L. lactis (pKS80sdrE+) and L. lactis (pKS80isdA+) grown to stationary phase were tested for their ability to bind to human desquamated epithelial cells. Counts represent the number of bacterial cells adhering to 100 squamous cells. Results are expressed as the mean of triplicate experiments +/- standard deviations.
