The adhesin-involved-in-diffuse-adherence (AIDA) afimbrial adhesin is produced by human, but not by animal, Escherichia coli, with the exception of German porcine verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) [Clin. Diagn. Lab. Immunol. 8 (2001) 143]. Presence and localisation of DNA sequences (aidA) coding for and production of an AIDA adhesin were investigated in a collection of Belgian VTEC and non-VTEC E. coli isolated from piglets at weaning time. The 174 isolates were also studied by colony… CONTINUE READING
