Inhibition of development of Shiga toxin-converting bacteriophages by either treatment with citrate or amino acid starvation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are pathogenic strains, whose virulence depends on induction of Shiga toxin-converting prophages and their subsequent lytic development. We explored which factors or conditions could inhibit development of these phages, potentially decreasing virulence of STEC. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lytic… (More)
