Lipopolysaccharide’s Role in the Association of Salmonella Cells to the Mouse Intestine Studied By Ribosomal in Situ Hybridization
The majority of microbes most probably exist in nature in close association with particular surfaces. The adhesive properties of microorganisms were first recognized at the beginning of this century. Since then it has been shown that bacterial adhesion is important in plant and animal hosts, pathogenesis, medical devices, aquatic and soil ecosystems, biodegradation, and industrial processes.
