Intestinal receptors for adhesive fimbriae of Escherichia coli in pigs - a review


Schweizer Archiv fur Tierheilkunde 135(3): 89-95
Intestinal receptors for adhesive fimbriae of Escherichia coli in pigs - a review
Mechanism of intestinal colonization by enterotoxigenic and enterotoxaemic E. coli in pigs are reviewed. Colonization depends on specific binding between adhesive fimbriae and receptors on the enterocytes. Special focus is given on the occurrence of specific intestinal receptors for the fimbrial antigens F4 (K88), F5 (K99), F6 (987P) and F41. The demonstration of these receptors allows the identification of susceptible and resistant pigs.
