Diversity studies of enteric Escherichia coli have relied almost entirely on faecal isolations on the assumption that they are representative of flora found throughout the gastrointestinal tract. The authors have addressed this belief by analysing isolates obtained from the duodenum, ileum, colon and faeces of pigs. E. coli isolates were obtained from eight pigs and characterized using multi-locus enzyme electrophoresis and PCR-based screening for a range of factors thought to be associated… CONTINUE READING
