Bacterial attachment to surfaces or association to other bacterial species is an important subject for understanding the complex bacterial communities that populate the intestinal tract. Disruption of these ecologically stable communities can lead to harmful effects for the host, i.e. permitting the access of opportunistic or newly arrived pathogens to sterile areas of the body producing disease. Virulence factors present in commensal bacteria can be induced in stress situations and could… CONTINUE READING
