[Identification of the 987P protein receptors for enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli].


The 987P fimbriae of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) mediates adhesive interactions with brush border vesicle (BBV) of the intestinal epithelial cells from the neonatal piglets. By adhering to intestinal epithelial cells, producing localized multiplication, the 987P ETEC can progress to mucosal surface colonization and concomitant effective… (More)
