Campylobacter jejuni colonization of the mucus layer of the mouse cecum.
Confocal image of Immunofuorescent staining of C. jejuni in the mucus layer of the cecum of a Sigirr-/- mouse. C. jejuni is labeled in red, Muc2, which comprises the mucus layer, in yellow, the Cytokeratin 19 in the intestinal epithelial cells, in green, and the cell nuclei in blue (DAPI). C. jejuni can be clearly seen traversing the mucus layer in large numbers and adhering along the epithelium. See Stahl et al.
