Fimbriate to afimbirate switch can be mediated by FimE gene product at twice magnitude frequency than FimB gene product, providing an efficient mechanism of rapidly ending fimbriae
synthesis in reply to suitable environmental stimuli.
entrapment, however uncommon, should be considered in female patients with a malfunctioning peritoneal dialysis catheter, especially in patients with complex abdominal anatomy and when other common causes can be excluded.
Use of F41 as an antigen in vaccines is less well defined when compared with the fimbriae
F4, F5, and F6 (MOON, 1990).
Involvement of minor components associated with the fimA fimbriae
of Porphyromonas gingivalis in adhesive functions.
and Pili are interchangeable terms used to designate short, hair-like structures on the surfaces of bacterial cells.
This association or bacterial adherence, essential for colonization and pathogenicity, is established through the virulence factors that like the fimbriae
facilitate colonization, maintenance, and protection of the bacterial species in the host.
7 Development of three subequal and ascending branches per node; fimbriae
on culm leaves 4-7 mm long; some populations develop oral setae on culm leaves.
coli bacteria, called fimbriae
, are starting to stick to the inside of your bladder wall," says Amy Howell of Rutgers University in Chatsworth, New Jersey.
A recent, serendipitous discovery, resulting from pathology examination of tissues removed during prophylactic salpingo-oophorectomy in patients with BRCA mutations, was that serous "ovarian" cancers actually arise from the fimbriae
of the fallopian tubes.
coli looks like someone who has forgotten to see the hairdresser for years - it is completely covered with hairy structures, called fimbriae
Results suggest that egg antibodies specific for the F18 fimbriae
is a suitable immunotherapeutic agent for pigs infected with F18+ E.
23,24) They can be divided into two functional groups: factors that aid in the attachment of the organism to host cells, which are the fimbriae
and flagella; and factors that aid in the invasion of tissue and the inhibition of the immune response.
