In this study, a total of 118 Escherichia coli strains isolated from dogs (93) and cats (25) with urinary tract infection (UTI) were tested in a multiplex polymerase chain reaction for the presence of adhesin-encoding genes (pap, sfa, and afa), hemolysin encoding genes (hly), cytotoxic necrotizing factor 1 (cnf1) and aerobactin (aer) genes. Virulence gene frequencies detected in those isolates which had been randomly collected (68 canine strains) were: 43% pap, 57% sfa, 1% afa, 44% hly, 41… CONTINUE READING
