Effects of inactivation of genes encoding adhesion factors and biofilm determinants in the C-1a strain. C-1a (pnp+) and its derivatives carrying mutations in genes encoding for adhesion determinants (ΔpgaC, impaired in PNAG production; ΔbcsA, impaired in cellulose production; ΔcsgA, impaired in curli production; ΔwcaD, impaired in colanic acid production) were grown over night in M9Glu/sup at 37°C in glass flasks. Cell aggregates were stained with crystal violet.
