Effects of single and multiple pathogenicity island deletions on uropathogenic Escherichia coli strain 536 intrinsic extra-intestinal virulence.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Escherichia coli strain 536 is a uropathogenic strain harboring 7 pathogenicity islands (PAIs). Whether or not these PAIs additively contribute to extra-intestinal virulence is unknown. METHODS We tested 7 single and several multiple-PAI deletion mutants in a mouse septicemia model by monitoring mouse survival. RESULTS E. coli 536 mutants in… (More)
