Actin and alpha-actinin dynamics in the adhesion and motility of EPEC and EHEC on host cells.


Two pathogenic Escherichia coli, Enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) and Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), adhere to the outside of host cells and induce cytoskeletal rearrangements leading to the formation of membrane-encased pedestals comprised of actin filaments and other associated proteins beneath the bacteria. The structure of the pedestals induced by the… (More)
