Importance of Fibronectin for Clostridium perfringens Adhesion to Host Tissue
Received Date: Feb 16, 2018 / Accepted Date: Feb 20, 2018 / Published Date: Feb 23, 2018
Clostridium perfringens, a Gram-positive, spore-forming, obligate anaerobe, is the cause of gas gangrene and food poisoning. Colonization of the host requires adhesion of bacterial cells to injured tissue. We review here recent results regarding the role of fibronectin in the interaction of C. perfringens cells with host collagens.
