AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the uropathogenic potential of Escherichia coli isolated from retail meats. METHODS AND RESULTS Two hundred E. coli isolates recovered from retail meats, which were previously identified molecularly as extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli, were investigated for the presence of 21 uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) virulence-associated genes. Twenty-three E. coli isolates were selected based on their serogroups and the number of virulence genes they… CONTINUE READING
