We examined 205 enterotoxigenic strains of Escherichia coli for colonization factor antigens (CFA) I and II, using an immunodiffusion technique with specific antisera. A total of 36 strains of serogroups O63, O78, O114, O128, and O153 and 1 rough strain possessed CFA/I and gave a single precipitin line; 47 strains of serogroups O6, O8, O80, and O115 possessed CFA/II. The latter strains gave a major precipitin line (component 3) when tested with specific antisera prepared against strain E1392 or… CONTINUE READING
