  • ABSTRACT The role of type 1 fimbriae in the interactions betweenEscherichia coli and Mytilus galloprovincialisLam. hemocytes was evaluated. The association of fimbriated strain MG155 with hemocyte monolayers at 18°C was 1.5- and 3- to 4-fold greater than the association of unfimbriated mutant AAEC072 in artificial seawater and in hemolymph serum, respectively. Such differences were apparently due to different adhesive properties since MG155 adhered more efficiently than AAEC072 when hemocytes… CONTINUE READING
