Abstract

VELANDIA, Claudia V. Granobles et al. Occurrence of subtilase cytotoxin and relation with other virulence factors in verocytotoxigenic Escherichia coli isolated from food and cattle in Argentina. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2011, vol.42, n.2, pp. 711-715. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822011000200037.

We investigated the presence of the gene of subtilase cytotoxin (SubAB), described in certain highly virulent verocytotoxigenic E. coli strains, in isolates from Argentina and its relation with other virulence factors. The gene subA was present in eae-negative strains mostly associated with saa, vt2 and ehxA genes.

Keywords : subtilase; VTEC; megaplasmid; verotoxin.
