Abstract | Full Text

Adhesion is the major stage of interaction of microorganisms with macroorganism, important factor with the help of which microflora colonizes different biotypes of macroorganism, thus providing colonization resistance, preventing adhesion and pathogenic invasion. In our study data about adhesive features of Aerococcus viridans autophytes of rats, mice and human are presented. Aerococcus viridans autosymbionts have higher performances of adhesion in the condition of heteroadhesion. Among performance of homoadhesion the highest microorganisms adhesive index (MAI) was in human autosymbionts – 5,78±0,04, in rats – 4,49±0,06 and mice – 4,29±0,04. On the account of greater adhesive features, using of autosymbionts of Aerococcus viridans theoretically can be justified for correction of disbiotic conditions of a human and animals, this requires further study.
