Abstract

A mutant (CD11) of was isolated after exposure of a wild-type pathogenic strain (KB207) to -methyl--nitro--nitrosoguanidine. Although the mutant was motile and chemotactic, it adhered poorly to rabbit intestinal mucosa. Pretreatment of vibrios with 10 mg -mannose ml and of intestinal mucosa with 100 mmol sodium metaperiodate inhibited adherence of KB207 but not of CD11. The gene () controlling mannose-sensitive adherence was mapped on the bacterial chromosome closely linked to the locus.
