Interaction Information:

Comment MVs are a major component of the matrix of P. aeruginosa biofilms. The ability to produce MVs is stronger in biofilm cells than in planktonic cells, biofilms contain more LPS per unit weight than do their planktonic counterparts, and biofilm MVs clearly represent a major reservoir of LPS within the biofilm matrix.
