Bacterial adhesion assay. (a) Comparison of adhesion between the strains. Quantification of bacteria adhered to the chicken embryo fibroblast cell line (CEF) in the absence or presence of methyl-alpha-D-mannopyranoside. (b) Relative fold expression of genes related to adhesion in SEPT362 verified using quantitative Real Time-PCR (qRT-PCR). Statistical significance was determined by Tukey’s test in comparison with SEPT362 (**, p < 0.01; *, p < 0.05)
