Detection of virulence genes of Escherichia coli intestinal pathotypes in animals, humans and water

Conference in Seminarios en Sanidad Animal

May 28th, 2015

Cabal A.

Nine virulence genes belonging to five pathotypes of Escherichia coli were directly detected by quantitative real-time PCR in the DNA extracted from fecal samples of both humans (patients and healthy controls) and animals (livestock and wildlife) as well as in water sources. The unexpected presence of some virulence genes in animals could indicate that other pathotypes different from STEC may be present in animals. In addition, the carriage of a particular virulence gene was not necessarily associated with disease.
