Abstract

Summary

Seven strains of isolated from diarrhoeal stools of children resembled enteropathogenic (EPEC) in that they produced attaching-effacing (AE) lesions in rabbit ileal loops and fluorescent actin staining in infected HEp-2 cells. In addition, a DNA probe from a chromosomal gene required by EPEC to produce AE lesions, hybridised to chromosomal DNA from all seven strains. These findings indicate that there is a sharing of virulence-associated properties at the phenotypic and genetic levels by and EPEC. strains with these properties should be considered diarrhoeagenic.
