Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) causes enterotoxin-induced diarrhoea and significant mortality. The molecular mechanisms underlying how the heat-labile enterotoxin (LT) is secreted during infection are poorly understood. ETEC produce outer-membrane vesicles (OMVs) containing LT that are endocytosed into host cells. Although OMV production and(More)
Growth of human, but not porcine enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) isolates is inhibited during incubation with porcine intestinal epithelial cells and by a constitutively produced factor(s) present in unstimulated cell supernatants. The inhibitory factor(s) is heat stable, not produced by serum-starved cells, and is present in a diverse number of(More)
