Proteomic analysis of Escherichia coli biofilms reveals the overexpression of the outer membrane protein OmpA.

Abstract

Bacterial colonisation and biofilm formation on the surface of urinary catheters is a common cause of nosocomial infection, and as such is a major impediment to their long-term use. Understanding the mechanisms of biofilm formation on urinary catheters is critical to their control and will aid the future development of materials used in their manufacture… (More)
