Abstract

The ability of species of enteric bacteria to recognize and colonize unique niches along the intestine is mainly based on receptor distribution and interpretation of a combination of environmental signals leading to the expression of specific adherence factors. Such elaborate orchestration of events is critical during the initial steps of pathogenesis.
