Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC ) is one of the main groups of diarrheagenic E. coli (DEC) and of the most frequent pathotypes cause of diarrhea. It may be differentiated in typical ( tEPEC ) and atypical ( aEPEC ) based on the presence of pEAF plasmid, which encodes the bfp gene responsible for the expression of fimbrial bundle forming pilus ( BFP ) in tEPEC strains and the abs...
Diarrheogenic Escherichia coli (DEC) are responsible for several cases of acute diarrhea, especially among children in developing countries, with important public health effect. Among the pathotypes of DEC, can be highlighted enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) producer of heat-labile toxin (LT) and heat-stable toxin (ST), one of the most frequent pathotypes of diarrheagenic E. coli. Indeed...
