Mucus-derived sugars can influence the specific biofilm formation of different strains of E. coli. Strain specific optimized conditions for biofilm formation were identified. LB was used for EAEC strain 17.2 and K-12 strain MG1655. LBWS was used for AIEC strain NC101 and M9 with glucose was used for EHEC strain EDL933. Biofilms were formed under static conditions at 30 °C except for strain EDL933 that was grown at 37 °C. NAG, NANA and fucose were supplemented at a concentration of 1 mM. SBF values are the mean and standard error of at least 3 biological experiments. Statistical analysis was made using one-way ANOVA with Dunnett’s multiple comparison test *P 0.05; **P 0.01; ***P 0.001
