Overview of Bacterial Adhesion The adherence of bacteria to cells or tissues in the body is the propagating step in infections. Bacterial surfaces contain several types of molecules that help them attach to cells, such as proteinaceous fimbriae or pili, flagella, lipopolysaccharides, and capsular polysaccharide molecules. When the bacterial structures find their complementary receptors on mammalian cells, the two bind tightly. In the case of urinary tract infections, fimbriae expressed by… Expand
