In this study, we identified two brush border glycoproteins (210 and 240 kDa) that bind both K88ac+ Escherichia coli and purified K88ac adhesin. The specificity of these binding glycoproteins for the(More)
Diarrheal disease caused by enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli expressing the K88 (F4) fimbrial adhesin (K88 ETEC) is a significant source of mortality and morbidity among newborn and weaned piglets.(More)
Three antigenic variants of the K88 fimbrial adhesin exist in nature, K88ab, K88ac, and K88ad. Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) strains that produce these fimbriae cause life-threatening(More)
