Integrin-Mediated Host Cell Invasion by Type 1–Piliated Uropathogenic Escherichia coli

Abstract

Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC), the primary causative agent of urinary tract infections, typically express filamentous adhesive organelles called type 1 pili that mediate both bacterial attachment to and invasion of bladder urothelial cells. Several host proteins have previously been identified as receptors for type 1 pili, but none have been… (More)
