Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology. Clin Infect Dis ; The net effect of internalin binding is to exploit the junction-forming apparatus of the host into internalizing the bacterium. Total time to identification takes five to seven days, but the announcement of specific nonradiolabelled DNA probes should soon allow a simpler and faster confirmation of suspect isolates. When this bacterium is present within a host organism, quorum sensing causes the up-regulation of several virulence genes.
