Chromosome of the enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7; comparative analysis with K-12 MG1655 revealed the acquisition of a large amount of foreign DNAs.


A complete Xba I and Bln I cleavage map was constructed for the chromosome of an enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157:H7 strain isolated from an outbreak in Sakai City, Japan, in 1996. A comparative chromosome analysis with E. coli K-12 strain MG1655 was made. The EHEC chromosome was approximately 5600 kb in length, 1 Mb larger than that of MG1655… (More)
