The prevalence of virulence and cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) genes and the cytotoxic activity in Vero and HEp-2 cells was estimated in 29 Campylobacter jejuni and 36 Campylobacter coli from foods, animals and humans isolates. All C. jejuni showed flaA, cadF, cdtA, cdtB, cdtC and cdt cluster genes fragments, except for ceuE (86.2%) and cdt genes (93.1%). Amongst C. coli strains, a lower prevalence of ceuE gene (83.3%) was detected than that for cdtA, cdtB, cdtC genes (97.2%), cdt gene… CONTINUE READING
