Twenty lactobacilli isolated from human feces were studied for binding to the human blood type B-antigen [Galα1-3 (Fucα1-2) Gal-] and H-antigen (Fucα1-2Gal-] expressed sugar chains in human intestinal mucosa. We found two strains, <I>L. gasseri</I> OLL2755 and <I>L. gasseri</I> OLL2877 that firmly adhere to human B-antigen, and we found <I>L. gasseri</I> OLL2827 bound to the H-antigen.
