Adherence to epithelial cells and ultrastructure of fosfomycin-resistant mutants of group A streptococci

Abstract

Adherence of three strains of group A streptococci and their fosfomycin-resistant mutants to HEp-2 tissue culture cells was compared with some cell-surface characteristics,i.e. ultrastructure and hydrophobicity. Among Fosr mutants, both well-adhering and weakly adhering mutants were found. Clonal analysis of the mutants proved their greater stability in the… (More)
