This study determined the prevalence of F4, F5, F6, F17 and F41 fimbriae and the genes for FedA (F18 fimbriae), LT and ST enterotoxins, and Shiga toxins Stx1, Stx2 and Stx2e among E. coli isolated from 372 weaned pigs with diarrhea and 46 healthy pigs of the same age. Agglutination tests showed that most isolates were negative for all five fimbrial antigens. The F4 antigen was found in 71 (19.1%) and the F5, F6, or F41 antigen was detected in 6.4% of isolates from diseased pigs. Genes for the… CONTINUE READING
