Adhesion to erythrocytes and pathogenicity of Escherichia coli strains causing enteritis in weaned rabbits



Adhesion to erythrocytes and pathogenicity of Escherichia coli strains causing enteritis in weaned rabbits



Revue de Medecine Veterinaire 140(8-9): 829-834



Highly pathogenic strains belonging to the O103 serogroup adhered in vitro to villi prepared from 8-day-old as well as 6-week-old rabbits. Adhesive properties and pathogenicity were strictly correlated. However, the same adhesion profile could be shown in non-pathogenic O128 strains. In both groups, adhesion was correlated with expression of an adhesin, probably of fimbrial type, identified in SDS-PAGE and Western blot as a protein of m. w. 32 kDa.
