Abstract : Enterohemorrhagic E.coli (EHEC) is the leading cause of infectious bloody diarrhea in the United States as well as acute renal failure among U.S. and Canadian children. EHEC colonize the large bowel and produce Shiga-like toxins (SLTs) that are considered essential for EHEC virulence. EHEC cause intestinal attaching and effacing (A/E) lesions in experimental animals and carry a homologue of the enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) eaeA (E. coli attach and efface) locus.
