87370-3Escherichia coli fasA gene [Presence] in Isolate by NAA with probe detectionActive

Part Description

LP262456-9   Escherichia coli fasA gene
Escherichia coli (EC) is a gram-negative, flagellated, rod-shaped bacterium that is composed of a stable core set of genes and another more fluid set of genes that include the virulence genes. These virulence genes encode heat-stable and heat-labile enterotoxins, Shiga toxin 2e, and fimbria including the F6 (also known as 987P and encoded by the fasA gene [UniProt: P21413]) fimbria and can be transferred laterally between dividing EC. [PMID: 7021219] [https://vetmed.iastate.edu/vdpam/FSVD/swine/index-diseases/colibacillosis] E. coli infection in pigs causes post-weaning diarrhea (PWD) which leads to watery diarrhea, dehydration, loss of body weight, and occasionally death. EC adheres to the small intestine using adhesin factors and produces one or more exotoxins that induce fluid and electrolyte secretion. [PMID: 7648523] The pilus 987P is often present on enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) found in the intestines of neonatal pigs, causing severe diarrheal disease.
