The authors clarified the contribution of flagella and curli to E. coli BW25113 colonization by using the yggE-deficient (ΔyggE) and rpoS-deficient (ΔrpoS) strains. Under a static condition, the plentiful flagella synthesized on ΔrpoS and ΔyggE cell surfaces facilitated the increased colonization. However, under a flow condition, only ΔyggE cells that formed abundant flagella and curli on their surfaces could maintain the stable colonization on the solid surface.
