Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli isolates are categorized into specific groups (pathotypes) based on virulence properties, mechanisms of pathogenicity, clinical syndromes, and distinct O:H serotypes. This chapter focuses on enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), which among the E. coli strains that cause foodborne illness in the United States, is the most significant group based on frequency and severity of illness. Since E. coli O157:H7 is the most common serotype of the EHEC and because more is… Expand
Virulence, Antimicrobial Resistance Properties and Phylogenetic Background of Non-H7 Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli O157
TLDR
Core genome phylogenetic analysis showed that O157:non-H7 isolates probably evolved from different phylogenetic lineages and were distantly related to the E. coli O 157:H7 lineage. Expand
Multiple evolutionary trajectories for non-O157 Shiga toxigenic Escherichia coli
TLDR
The genomic analyses reported here present non-O157 STEC as a diverse group of pathogenic E. coli emerging from multiple lineages that independently acquired mobile genetic elements that promote pathogenesis. Expand
Genetic characterization of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O26:H11 strains isolated from animal, food, and clinical samples
TLDR
The results show that O26:H11 STEC strains circulating in Argentina, including those isolated from humans, cattle, and meat products, present a high pathogenic potential, and evidence that cattle can be a reservoir of O26?:H11 strains harboring stx2a is shown. Expand
Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli. The Twentieth Century's Emerging Foodborne Pathogen: A Review
TLDR
The importance of developing novel control strategies that are effective and have the potential to be considered natural or organic is stressed, with main emphasis on leafy green vegetables. Expand
Characterisation of Escherichia coli of the bovine intestinal tract
TLDR
The results presented here support the proposal that bacteriophages are the key mediators of genetic variability among E. coli isolates and predict whether increased incidence of EHEC infection in Scotland may be related to the presence of E HEC strains carrying altered complement of virulence factor-encoding genes. Expand
Evolution of Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O26 Based on Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms
TLDR
The dated the emergence of human EHEC O26 to approximately 19,700 years ago and demonstrated a recent evolution within humans into the 4 SNP-CCs over the past 1,650 years to gain new insights into the evolution of EH EC O26. Expand
Methods for Detecting Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia Coli in Food
TLDR
The state-of-the-art laboratory methods and commercial kits for detecting strains of EHEC vehiculated with foods and the existence of the draft of the European Committee for Standardization are described. Expand
Recent Advances in Understanding Enteric Pathogenic Escherichia coli
TLDR
A comprehensive review highlights recent advances in understanding of the intestinal pathotypes of E. coli, which carry an enormous potential to cause disease and continue to present challenges to human health. Expand
Virulence, serotype and phylogenetic groups of diarrhoeagenic Escherichia coli isolated during digestive infections in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire
TLDR
The virulence, serotype and phylogenetic traits of diarrhoeagenic Escherichia coli were detected in 502 strains isolated during digestive infections and shows a diversified population of intestinal strains, with a low phenotypic and phylogenetics link lower. Expand
DETECTION OF VIRULENCE AND ADHERENCE GENE IN Escherichia Coli O157:H7 ISOLATED FROM ANIMAL PRODUCTS
TLDR
The results showed that all tested bacteria were sensitive to gentamycin and Amikacin and resistant to amoxicillin and cefoxitim. Expand

Pathogenesis and evolution of virulence in enteropathogenic and enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli.
TLDR
Some of the known virulence factors that contribute to the heterogeneity of E. coli strains are explored, and what is known regarding the origin and distribution of these factors is reviewed. Expand
Extensive genomic diversity and selective conservation of virulence-determinants in enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli strains of O157 and non-O157 serotypes
TLDR
Although O157 and non-O157 EHECs have independently acquired a huge amount of serotype- or strain-specific genes by lateral gene transfer, they share an unexpectedly large number of virulence genes. Expand
Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli
TLDR
The current level of understanding of the pathogenesis of the diarrheagenic E. coli strains is discussed and how their pathogenic schemes underlie the clinical manifestations, diagnostic approach, and epidemiologic investigation of these important pathogens are described. Expand
Non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli infections in the United States, 1983-2002.
TLDR
Non-O157 STEC can cause severe illness that is comparable to the illness caused by STEC O157, and Strains that produce Shiga toxin 2 are much more likely to cause HUS than are those that produceShiga toxin 1 alone. Expand
Distribution of Putative Adhesins in Different Seropathotypes of Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli
TLDR
Seropathotype A, which is associated with severe disease and frequently is involved in outbreaks, possesses a unique adhesin profile which is not present in the other seropathotypes and could be a candidate for vaccine development. Expand

TLDR
Although four different STEC strains were identified in patients and foods, the results of molecular subtyping, in conjunction with analysis of food consumption patterns, strongly suggested that this outbreak was caused by mutton contaminated with STEC O148. Expand

TLDR
This review addresses the problems associated with these pathogens, demonstrating that increasing the awareness of them is a major part of the problem and some methods of improving isolation of these pathogens are addressed. Expand
Long-term shedding and clonal turnover of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157 in diarrheal diseases
TLDR
To investigate the length of time that Shiga-like toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157 is excreted after the onset of diarrhea, 456 serial stool specimens were obtained from 53 children and revealed that in three of the seven long-term shedders, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis types varied.

Growing Concerns and Recent Outbreaks Involving Non-O157:H7 Serotypes of Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli.
TLDR
The diversity and complexity of the VTEC family requires that laboratories and public health surveillance systems have the ability to detect and monitor all serotypes of VTEC. Expand
Molecular Evolution of a Pathogenicity Island from Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7
TLDR
The complete 43,359-bp sequence of the locus of enterocyte effacement (LEE) from EDL933 is reported, which suggests recombinational divergence coupled with natural selection and has implications for the understanding of the interaction of both pathogens with their host, for the emergence of O157:H7, and for the evolutionary history of pathogens in general.
