Architecture and matrix assembly determinants of Bordetella pertussis biofilms on primary human airway epithelium
This study investigates how Bordetella pertussis, the pathogen responsible for whooping cough, forms structured biofilms in human bronchial epithelial cells. The model presented reveals the nature of ECM and bacterial determinants required for biofilm formation on primary human airway cells.
