Diarrhoea in piglets due to Escherichia coli is an important problem in the pig farming industry. Adhesion of these bacteria to the epithelial cells of small intestine is an essential prerequisite for the incidence of diarrhoea. Among the putative candidate genes associated with adhesion pattern, TFRC (transferrin receptor) gene was localized on targeted region of SSC13 and considered as a positional candidate gene. The present investigation was conducted to evaluate the Indian desi pigs in terms of E. coli adhesion pattern (with Indian isolate) and study TFRC expression profile in different adhesion phenotypes. A total of 4 types of adhesion pattern were observed with different frequencies. RT-PCR analysis revealed that TFRC mRNA expression level was different across the differentially adhesive phenotypes. The increased level of TFRC expression indicates its role in immunity against E. coli mediated diarrhoea.
