The embryo lethality of Escherichia coli isolates and its relationship to the presence of virulence-associated genes.

Abstract

The aims of this study were to determine if the chicken embryo lethality assay and the presence of 9 virulence-associated genes of Escherichia coli were correlated and to discover which virulence genes contributed most to embryo lethality. We examined 58 E. coli strains isolated from visceral organs of chickens with colibacillosis for the presence of 9… (More)
