Specific adherence of pathogenic Escherichia coli (serotypes O1, O2, and O78) to chicken tracheal epithelium was investigated using adherence-inhibition procedures. The role of pilus as adhesin was studied by blocking the pilus with antipilus antibodies. The nature of the host cell receptor was determined by blocking bacterial adhesion with specific… CONTINUE READING
