Cloning of the f165(2) operon that encodes F1C-like fimbriae in Escherichia coli indicates that this operon is a member of the S/Foc family. The genetic determinant coding for the F165(2) fimbriae was cloned from the chromosome of the porcine E. coli wild-type strain 4787 (O115:K-1:H51:F165). The cloned F165(2) and the wild-type operon expressed a major fimbrial protein subunit of molecular mass 17.2 kDa that was detected by anti-F165 and anti-F1C polyclonal sera. The sequences of the f165(2)A… CONTINUE READING
