stx genotype and molecular epidemiological analyses of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7/H− in human and cattle isolates


The relationship between human diseases caused by infection with Shiga toxin (Stx)-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157 strains and O157 strains isolated from cattle was investigated in an area where stockbreeding is prolific. For this purpose, the stx genotypes, the molecular epidemiological characteristics of 268 STEC O157 strains including 211 human… (More)
