Until recently, the fimbrial F18 antigen has been provisionally designated F107, 2134P, or 8813. Using the slide agglutination test, this antigen was shown to be present on 139 of 160 Escherichia coli strains of type O139:K82 and on all of the 146 K88-negative strains of the other pathogenic porcine serotypes. These strains were isolated from weaned pigs which in most cases had died from postweaning colibacillosis. All strains were haemolytic. With only three exceptions, they produced verotoxin… CONTINUE READING
