Proteus mirabilis isolates of different origins do not show correlation with virulence attributes and can colonize the urinary tract of mice.


Proteus mirabilis has been described as an aetiological agent in a wide range of infections, playing an important role in urinary tract infections (UTIs). In this study, a collection of P. mirabilis isolates obtained from clinical and non-clinical sources was analysed in order to determine a possible correlation between origin, virulence factors and in vivo… (More)
