AIMS To determine the production of bacteriocin by Shigella flexneri strains, to relate their production to the presence of dysenteric diarrhoea and to asses the genetic determination of the bacteriocin. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and sixteen strains of Sh. flexneri were isolated from patients with diarrhoea and 49 of them produced bacteriocin active against several Escherichia coli and abacteriocinogenic Sh. flexneri strains. The extrachromosomal DNA isolated from bacteriocinogenic Sh… CONTINUE READING
