Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most important bacterial pathogen associated with chronic airway infection, especially in cystic fibrosis. We addressed the question of whether the galactophilic internal lectin of P. aeruginosa (PA-I) could represent a virulence factor for the respiratory epithelium. PA-I lectin was localized in all the bacteria of P. aeruginosa ATCC 33347 as determined by immunofluorescence staining. We investigated the dose-dependent effect of P. aeruginosa PA-I lectin on the… CONTINUE READING
