The purposes of this study were to determine the phylogenetic background and the virulence gene profiles of Escherichia coli isolates from colisepticemic and feces of healthy (AFEC) broiler chickens. In this study, 253 E. coli isolates including 141 avian pathogenic E. coli (APEC) and 112 AFEC isolates were examined by PCR. In general, 253 E. coli isolates(More)
Virulence factors are associated with the capacity of E. coli strains to cause intestinal and extraintestinal infections. Thirty one E. coli isolates were obtained from heart blood or internal organs of septicemic calves. The O serogroups of isolates were determined. PCR assays were performed to determine the phylogenetic groups and presence of specific(More)
One hundred and twenty seven Escherichia coli isolates from bovine mastitis were examined to detect the phylogenetic group/subgroups and a selection of virulence associated genes. Forty nine (38.58%) isolates belonged to group B1 the remaining isolates fell into four phylogenetic subgroups: A(0) (18.11%), A(1) (26.77%), D(1) (6.29%) and D(2) (10.23%). None(More)
Canine herpes virus-1 (CHV-1) is an alphaherpesvirus, which causes foetal and neonatal death as well as fertility problems in dogs. The virus is presumed to be enzootic in dogs all over the world, but no information was found about the seroprevalence of CHV-1 from middle-east countries. Therefore, this study was aimed to determine the seroprevalence of(More)
Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale is a gram negative bacterial pathogen causing respiratory tract infections in poultry. Tracheal, lung and serum samples were obtained from 21 broiler flocks of 8 farms from a slaughterhouse located in south-eastern of Iran. Among 630 tracheal and lung samples from samples resulting from 315 chickens, 11 (3.5%) ORT isolates(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of virulence genes and phylogenetic groups/subgroups of Escherichia coli (E. coli) isolates from diarrheic and urinary tract infections (UTI) cases in Rigan area, southeast of Iran. One hundred thirty five E. coli were isolated from diarrheic (90 isolates) and urinary tract infections (45 isolates)(More)
This study was conducted to characterize the Escherichia coli isolates from colisepticemic Japanese quails. One hundred and nine E. coli were isolated in pure culture from heart blood of dead Japanese quails. The sampled birds were originated from four different farms. Antibiotic resistance pattern of E. coli isolates were determined against nine(More)
F17 fimbriae are produced by pathogenic Escherichia coli involved in diarrhea and septicemia outbreaks in calves and lambs. These proteins result from the expression of four different clustered genes, namely f17A, f17D, f17C and f17G, encoding a pilin protein, a periplasmic protein, an anchor protein and an adhesin protein, respectively. Several variants of(More)
Two hundred and four Escherichia coli strains were isolated from external and visceral cavity surfaces of 102 slaughtered broiler carcasses. The isolates were screened to determine the phylogenetic background and presence of Shiga toxins (stx1, stx2), intimin (eae) and beta-lactamase (blaTEM, blaSHV) genes. Phylotyping results revealed that the E. coli(More)
AIM The aims of this study were to investigate the phenotypic and genotypic of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) and metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) and determine phylogenetic background E. coli isolates from fecal samples of patients with diarrhea in Kerman, southeast of Iran. BACKGROUND The emergence of ESBLs and MBLs-producing E. coli caused problems in(More)
