Urinary oligosaccharides inhibit adhesion of E. coli onto canine urinary tract epithelium.


Canine urine fractions were tested for their capacity to release Escherichia coli from everted canine ureteral segments. Urine was effective in detaching epithelially-bound E. coli; the active principle was a small molecular weight carbohydrate. Treatment with lectins decreased the degree of E. coli surface colonization, which confirms the importance of the… (More)
