Interaction Information:

Comment The mucosal barrier epithelium is comprised of one or more layers of epithelial cells that have specialized and distinct apical and basolateral surfaces, separated by tight junctions (TJs), that form selective permeability barriers between biological compartments. For opportunistic pathogens, like P. aeruginosa, the mucosal barrier represents a formidable challenge to bacterial-mediated damage or entry.
