From: Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses multiple receptors for adherence to laminin during infection of the respiratory tract and skin wounds

Figure 5

The Pseudomonas aeruginosa laminin-receptors bind to the globular domains. Laminin-111 was visualized by TEM (a) The scalebar indicates 100 nm, and arrows point at the LG domain at the C-terminal of the alpha-subunit, whereas arrowheads mark the short arms of the alpha, beta and gamma subunits. Laminin (arrow heads) was incubated with EstA (b), OprD (c), OprG (d), PA3923 (e) and Paf (f), which were labelled with 10 nm colloidal gold (arrows). All bacterial receptors adhered to the LG domains at the base of the cross-shaped laminin molecule. Three representative pictures of each protein are shown, and the scale bar indicates 50 nm.
