Quantification of Neisseria meningitidis Adherence to Human Epithelial Cells by Colony Counting
To cause an infection, the human specific pathogen Neisseria meningitides must first colonize the nasopharynx. Upon tight interaction with the mucosal epithelium, N. meningitidis may cross the epithelial cellular barrier, reach the ...
Live-cell Imaging of Neisseria meningitidis Microcolony Dispersal Induced by Lactate or Other Molecules
Authors:  Sara Sigurlásdóttir, Olaspers Sara Eriksson, Jens Eriksson and Ann-Beth Jonsson, date: 01/20/2018, view: 233, Q&A: 0
To efficiently colonize the nasopharyngeal epithelium, the human restricted pathogen Neisseria meningitidis follows a multistep adhesion cascade. First, the bacteria adhere to host cells and aggregate into spherical shaped structures called ...
