Table 1 Frequency of adhesive events between A. salmonicida and Y. ruckeri bacterial probes and mucin-coated surfaces. Parallels i-iii represents three separate bacterial probes used against three separate mucin-coated surfaces. MucS and MucI are mucins isolated from the skin and proximal intestine, respectively, of adult Atlantic salmon individuals
