Interaction of HMVII cells with 4 g/mL of U. parvum LAMP with and without L. fermentum FA4 or L. plantarum PA3. (a) Control (HMVII cells alone). (b) HMVII with UpLAMP. (c) HMVII with UpLAMP and L. fermentum FA4. (d) HMVII with UpLAMP and L. plantarum PA3. Green arrows indicate intact HMVII cells, red arrows indicate HMVII cells with altered morphology, and yellow arrows indicate lactobacilli adhered to whole cells (scanning electron microscopy, ×2500).
