BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Measurement of the main Proteus mirabilis virulence factors would increase our understanding of how the organism infects and colonizes the urinary tract. The purpose of this study was to quantify the virulence factors of twelve P. mirabilis laboratory strains and to determine whether expression of virulence factors of P. mirabilis depends on the presence of homoserine-lactone derivatives. METHODS Twelve P. mirabilis strains with defined lipopolysaccharide structures… CONTINUE READING
