AIEC localizes with late endosomes in infected epithelial cells. Intestine 407 cells were infected with AIEC for 4 h and then fixed and stained with anti-LAMP1 antibody and DAPI. Multiple bacteria were observed adherent to cells and several invasive organisms (stained by DAPI) were found within the perinuclear region of the epithelial cell in LAMP1 positive compartments (arrows in Panel A). Panel B: enlarged image of dashed insert in Panel A, highlights colocalization of an invasive organism with the late endosomal marker LAMP1.
