The distribution of 7 urovirulence factors, such as type 1 pilus (pil), pilus associated with pyelonephritis (pap), S fimbriae (sfa), afimbrial adhesin I (afaI), hemolysin (hly), aerobactin (aer) and cytotoxic necrotizing factor 1 (cnf1) was examined by a DNA colony hybridization test among 194 Escherichia coli strains isolated from the urine of cystitis patients and in 80 strains isolated from the stool specimens of healthy adults. All virulence factors examined, except pil, were significantly… CONTINUE READING
