Abstract

Normal cell polarity protects epithelial cells against Pseudomonas aeruginosa invasion and cytotoxicity. Using epithelial cell clones with selective defects in sorting of membrane constituents, and using hepatocyte growth factor pretreatment, we found that polarized susceptibility to P. aeruginosa can be altered without disrupting tight junctions. The results also showed that cellular susceptibility factors for invasion and cytotoxicity are not the same, although both are localized to the basolateral cell surface in polarized epithelial cells.
