Part Description

LP262464-3   Escherichia coli FimF41a gene
The Escherichia coli (EC) pilus gene FimF41a encodes the F41 fimbria. The F41 fimbria is one of the virulence factors associated with postweaning diarrhea (PWD) only in swine.[https://www.aasv.org/shap/issues/v10n4/v10n4p171.pdf]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 includes the virulence genes. These virulence genes increase the pathogenicity of EC and encode heat-stable and heat-labile enterotoxins, Shiga toxin 2e, and fimbria, including the F41 fimbria. The virulence genes 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] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
