Genetic background and mobility of variants of the gene nleA in attaching and effacing Escherichia coli.


In this study, we characterized the genetic background of various nleA variants in 106 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) and enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) strains. The flanking regions of eight nleA variants were analyzed by DNA sequencing and compared with the corresponding regions of five previously described NleA-encoding prophages… (More)
