Abstract

Various cell surface molecules and structures have been implicated in biofilm formation in Escherichia coli. This review presents an overview of the occurrence, production and interaction of these components, their influence at one or more developmental stages of biofilm formation, and their potential role as virulence factors in pathogenic E. coli strains.
