Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli infection leads to appearance of aberrant tight junctions strands in the lateral membrane of intestinal epithelial cells.

Abstract

Infection of intestinal epithelial cells with enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) disrupts tight junction (TJ) architecture and barrier function. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of EPEC on TJ protein interactions and localization. Human intestinal epithelial cells (T84) were infected for 1, 3 or 6 h with EPEC. To probe the TJ protein… (More)
