Quantitative analysis of lectin-bacteria interactions of Haemophilus influenza strains.

A panel of biotin-label lectins is used to interrogate bacterial extract and purified lipopolysaccharides arrayed on a 16 pad ONCYTE Supernova microarray slide. Bacterial surfaces are decorated with short chain lipopolysaccharides (LOSs). These molecules mediate bacterial mobility and cell adhesion. They are also involved in the host immune system evasion and modulation. In fact, one … Continued
