An early process in the pathogenesis of enteric bacteria is colonization of the intestinal epithelium leading to local multiplication, pathophysiological interactions with the host and further spreading. Attachment is typically mediated by bacterial fimbriae, which are selectively expressed during growth in the intestine. Here we report an analysis of the regulation of 987P fimbrial expression of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC). Expression of both fasH, the transcriptional activator of… CONTINUE READING
