Identification of bacterial invasion with GFP-labeled EPEC or EHEC O157:H7. The internalized GFP-labeled EPEC or GFP-labeled EHEC O157:H7 within HT-29, HT-29-OBN, HT-29-Gal, or HT-29-Gal-OBN cells was observed under a confocal microscope after co-culturing with GFP-labeled bacteria and tissue cells and further gentamicin treatment. The internalized bacteria were confirmed based on the presence of green fluorescence within the bacteria-infected cells. ×63 objective
