A total of 136 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) isolated during a longitudinal survey of three Australian dairy farms were examined to determine their virulence factors, serotype and genomic relationships. This study aimed to assess the potential of these STEC to cause disease in humans and to analyse the on-farm ecology of STEC. Virulence factors (stx, eae, ehxA) were used as determinants of potential to be enterohaemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) and were examined using polymerase chain… CONTINUE READING
