F. nucleatum and C. showae co-aggregation. Phase-contrast microscopy images of (A) F. nucleatum CC53 alone, (B) C. showae CC57C alone and (C) a mixture of CC53 and CC57C, following incubation in co-aggregation buffer (see methods). The long, thin cells of CC53 readily self-aggregate when incubated in aggregation buffer alone (panel A), but also show aggregative ability with the much smaller CC57C coccobacilli (panel C). Images were taken using a Leica DM750 microscope fitted with a 100× oil objective, using the Leica Application Suite LAS EZ Version 1.7.0 software.
