Occurrence and regulation of the multicellular morphotype in Salmonella serovars important in human disease.

Abstract

Multicellular behavior in Salmonella Typhimurium ATCC14028 called the rdar morphotype is characterized by the expression of the extracellular matrix components cellulose and curli fimbriae. Over 90% of S. Typhimurium and S. Enteritidis strains from human disease, food and animals expressed the rdar morphotype at 28 degrees C. Regulation of the rdar… (More)
