Western blot analysis employing type 3 fimbriae specific antiserum. The proteins from C. koseri M546 (lane 2), C. koseri M546mrk (lane 3), E. coli ECOR15 (lane 4), E. coli ECOR15mrk (lane 5), K. oxytoca M126 (lane 6), K. oxytoca M126mrk (lane 7), K. pneumoniae M692 (lane 8) and K. pneumoniae M692mrk (lane 9) were acid boiled prior to loading. Molecular size markers are indicated in lane 1. The Type 3 fimbriae major subunit, MrkA, was only observed in the wild-type strains and not in the mrk deletion mutants. The arrow indicates the ~15 kDa band corresponding to MrkA.
