Attaching and effacing adhesion to epithelial cells is a pathognomonic feature of infection by both enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) and certain strains of verocytotoxin-producing E. coli (VTEC). EPEC adhesion to tissue culture epithelial cells results in activation of the phosphatidylinositol pathway, with elevated levels of inositol 1,4,5… CONTINUE READING
