Abstract

Summary.

The presence of R-plasmid RP1 increased the adhesion of chemostat-grown iron- and carbon-limited to the surfaces of various medical prostheses and to glass. Similar results were obtained with iron-limited and anaerobically-grown Escherichia coli. Changes in the surface of . indicated that the R-plasmid-mediated increase in negative charge was one of the factors that promoted adhesion.
