FERNANDEZ, Heriberto et al. Enhancing adherence of Arcobacter butzleri after serial intraperitoneal passages in mice. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp.75-79. ISSN 0325-7541.

We investigated the possibility of enhancing the adherence capacity of four low-adherent Arcobacter butzleri strains after serial intraperitoneal passage (i. p.) in mice. All the strains enhanced their adherence capacity after the first passage, increasing their adhesion rates after each passage. These results suggest that i. p. passage enhances the expression of adherence in A. butzleri strains.

Keywords : Arcobacter butzleri; Virulence; Adhesion; Intraperitoneal passage.
