Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) frequently occurs in diarrheal disease afflicting domestic animals. In this paper is summarized the research carried out over the last decade on the two important determinants of virulence that play a role in the development of the infection, namely the colonizing ability of the small intestine mediated by specific fimbrial adhesins acting as lectins and the production of enterotoxins. Recent progress in knowledge of the phenomenon led to alternative… CONTINUE READING
