Pathologic changes in the rats bladders infected with UPEC. a Control uninfected bladder; b bladder infected by E. coli coded 13β (hly+ cnf 1 clbA clbQ); c bladder infected by E. coli isolate coded 67 (hly cnf 1 clbA clbQ); d bladder infected by E. coli coded 6β (hly+ cnf 1+ clbA+ clbQ+); (e, f): bladder infected by E. coli coded 70β (hly+ cnf 1+ clbA+ clbQ+). p, Lamina propria; e, edema; ds, desquamated epithelium; hp, hyperplastic changes. Continuous arrows indicate normal transitional epithelium (a); inflammatory cell infiltration (b); vacuolar degeneration and inflammatory cell infiltration (c); necrosis (d); degenerative necrosis (e).
