Escherichia coli isolates from bovine mastitis were examined for a selection of virulence factors. The strains originated from Finland and Israel, which have differences in the proportion of mastitis caused by E. coli, clinical pictures of coliform mastitis, environmental conditions and herd management. The genes of nine virulence factors were detected by polymerase chain reaction. Presence of K1 and K5 capsules was assessed by use of specific bacteriophages. Serum resistance was tested by a… CONTINUE READING
