Enteropathogens associated with acute diarrheal disease in urban infants in São Paulo, Brazil.
To determine the prevalence and epidemiology of enteropathogens in acute infantile diarrhea, 500 infants less than or equal to 12 months of age with diarrhea and 500 age-matched control subjectsExpand

Detection of diarrheagenic Escherichia coli from children with and without diarrhea in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
We identified different diarrheagenic (DEC) Escherichia coli pathotypes isolated from 1,207 children with and without acute endemic diarrhea in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil collected as part of aExpand

Detection of intimins alpha, beta, gamma, and delta, four intimin derivatives expressed by attaching and effacing microbial pathogens.
Intimins are outer membrane proteins expressed by enteric bacterial pathogens capable of inducing intestinal attachment-and-effacement lesions. A eukaryotic cell-binding domain is located within aExpand

Distinctive patterns of adherence of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli to HeLa cells.
We showed that Escherichia coli strains attach to HeLa cells in two different patterns. In one, the bacteria cover the whole surface of the cell (diffuse adherence), and in the other, attachment isExpand

Detection of Intimins α, β, γ, and δ, Four Intimin Derivatives Expressed by Attaching and Effacing Microbial Pathogens
ABSTRACT Intimins are outer membrane proteins expressed by enteric bacterial pathogens capable of inducing intestinal attachment-and-effacement lesions. A eukaryotic cell-binding domain is locatedExpand

Prevalence of Escherichia coli strains with localized, diffuse, and aggregative adherence to HeLa cells in infants with diarrhea and matched controls.
To determine the possible role of Escherichia coli strains with three different patterns of adherence to HeLa cells in causing diarrhea in infants in São Paulo, Brazil, we studied stool specimensExpand

Phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of Escherichia coli strains of non-enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) serogroups that carry EAE and lack the EPEC adherence factor and Shiga toxin DNA probe
This study was conducted to characterize the virulence potential of 59 Escherichia coli strains carrying EAE and lacking the enteropathogenic E. coli adherence factor and Shiga toxin probe sequences.Expand

Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli categories among the traditional enteropathogenic E. coli O serogroups--a review.
The so called enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) O serogroups include typical and atypical EPEC, enterohaemorrragic E. coli, enterotoxigenic E. coli, and enteroaggregative E. coli. The aim ofExpand
