porcine intestinal epithelial cells.
(B) The confocal image showed GFP-
transformed bacterial (ETEC strain B41)
attachment to IPEC-J2 cells.
(C) ETEC F18 strain 2134 intensively bound
binding affinity to different cell lines. Fig. 1. Adherence of E. coli strains to IPEC-J2 and IPEC-1 cells
used as in vitro study of pathogenesis of ETEC.
