Insertion site of the locus of enterocyte effacement in enteropathogenic and enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli differs in relation to the clonal phylogeny of the strains.

The locus of enterocyte effacement pathogenicity island confers the attaching and effacing histopathology on epithelial cells infected with enteropathogenic and enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli. We investigated the site of insertion of the locus of enterocyte effacement in E. coli strains in relation to their evolution based on conservation of… CONTINUE READING
