Involvement of cell surface HSPGs in the binding of pathogens to lung cells. a Differential transcription of syndecans and glypicans in lung cells; values on the Y-axis are represented on a logarithmic scale. b-c Effect of treatment with anti-SDC antibodies and with PI-PLC on pathogen attachment to A549 cells (b) and MRC5 cells (c). d Relative differences in mean bacterial adherence inhibition between lung cells treated with anti-SDC antibodies and with PI-PLC. Data are shown normalized to the control represented by binding in the absence of treatment. The spreads represent standard deviation. Statistically significant differences are denoted by *** for p < 0.001
