Abstract

Summary

Adhesion of bacteria to guinea-pig colonic epithelial cells was inhibited by fucose with all the four strains tested (two of type 1 and two of ). N-acetyl neuraminic acid and N-acetyl mannosamine also caused inhibition, suggesting a multiplicity of receptors on the epithelial cell. Congo-red binding of the strains correlated with their adhesive ability, whereas haemagglutination of rabbit erythrocytes by the bacteria did not.
