Figure 4

High resolution FESEM of C. jejuni- induced filopodia formation. Representative sections of wild-type fibroblasts incubated for 6 hours with wt C. jejuni 81-176 (A) and non-infected fibroblast control cells that were mock-treated (B) are shown. Infection revealed the occurrence of membrane protrusion events with long filopodia at the periphery and on top of cells which were only sporadically seen in the non-infected control cells (blue arrows).
