A survey of colicins in the ECOR reference collection of Escherichia coli is presented. Twenty-five of the 72 ECOR strains exhibited a phenotype consistent with colicin production and E. coli isolated from human hosts were more likely to be colicinogenic than those from animal hosts. Multiple representatives of two Col plasmids, low-molecular-mass ColE1 plasmids and high-molecular-mass, conjugative ColIa plasmids were isolated from the ECOR collection and were examined with a combination of… CONTINUE READING
