The diarrheal mechanisms in Aeromonas enteritis are not completely understood. In this study we investigated the effect of aeromonads and of their secretory products on ion secretion and barrier function of monolayers of human intestinal cells (HT-29/B6). Ion secretion was determined as a short-circuit current (I(SC)) of HT-29/B6 monolayers mounted in… (More)
