Abstract

Two typical coliforms from an intestinal biopsy from an adult case of bloody diarrhoea carried genes encoding intimin-β, and , and produced verocytotoxin 1 and enterohaemolysin in culture. Both were biochemically typical O5 : H, apart from producing urease. Such O5 isolates represent a human pathogenic lineage.
