Abstract:

Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) are important enteric pathogens that cause a wide variety of gastrointestinal diseases, particularly in children. Escherichia coli isolates cultured from 185 diarrheal stool samples obtained from in and around Tiruchirappalli District, Tamilnadu, India. The samples were screened by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for genes characteristic of enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC), enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC), enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), and enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC). The DEC were detected only one ETEC gene were detected, were EAEC; EHEC, and EIEC were not detected. The EAEC isolates were also tested for eight genes associated with virulence using PCR.
