Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was used to characterize the colonization patterns of 3 pathogenic Escherichia coli strains: PD58 and PD149 of the AIDA-I/STb/EAST1 pathotype, serogroup O: ND (not determined), and PD31 of the LT/STb/EAST1 pathotype, serogroup O149. These strains were isolated from diseased piglets and caused diarrhea in experimentally inoculated, newborn, colostrum-deprived pigs. In this study, intestinal tissues from newborn pigs experimentally infected with a high… CONTINUE READING
