Campylobacter jejuni is one of the major causes of human diarrhea throughout the world. Attachment to host cells and extracellular matrix proteins is considered to be an essential primary event in the pathogenesis of enteritis. Outer membrane proteins of three C. jejuni strains, one of which was aflagellate, were investigated for their contribution to the process of adhesion to INT 407 cell membranes and the extracellular matrix protein fibronectin. Using a ligand-binding immunoblotting assay… CONTINUE READING
