Abstract

Several fimbriae have been implicated as potentially important in EPEC adhesion and pathogenesis. EPEC strain E2348/69 produced only bundle forming pili and type 1 fimbriae, and did not produce other accesory adhesins identified in EPEC strain B171. Cloning and mutagenesis of these EPEC fim genes indicated that type 1 pili had no affect on levels or patterns of adhesion to cultured human cells.
