Escherichia coli O157:H7 strains that express Shiga toxin (Stx) 2 alone are more neurotropic for gnotobiotic piglets than are isotypes producing only Stx1 or both Stx1 and Stx2.

Infection with Escherichia coli O157:H7 can lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) in some children. Epidemiologic data suggest that Shiga toxin (Stx) 2-producing strains are more frequently associated with HUS than are Stx1-producing strains. Less clear is whether strains that express Stx2 alone are more frequently associated with HUS than strains that express Stx1 and Stx2. Isogenic mutants 933stx1- and 933stx2- were produced from strain 933 (Stx1 and Stx2 producer), and 86-24stx2- was… CONTINUE READING
