Abstract

Abstract A pilus produced by Aeromonas hydrophila was purified and partially characterized. The pilin monomers had an apparent molecular weight of 17 000. Agglutination studies indicated serological cross-reactivity in the pili of A. hydrophila strains. Presence of pili did not correlate with hydrophobicity or haemagglutinating ability of the bacteria.
