Transmission electron microscopy images of A. baumannii SMAL biofilm-forming cells. Panel A: A. baumannii cells resuspended from biofilm 10,000× magnification. The bundle-like fibers embedding the bacterial cells are indicated by the arrow. Panel B: A. baumannii cells resuspended from biofilm and treated with 1 Unit cellulase for 30 minutes, 12,000× magnification.
