To determine whether uropathogenic strains of Escherichia coli exhibit a distinctive constellation of phenotypes, we examined 44 urinary isolates from women with radiologically normal urinary tracts and pyelonephritis, cystitis, or asymptomatic bacteriuria and 73 fecal isolates from healthy control subjects. The strains were characterized by their O serogroup, by their binding specificity (as determined by adhesins), and by their production of hemolysin and colicin V. In addition, the strains… CONTINUE READING
