Escherichia coli virulence factor genes
The EscCol-VirFactor dtec-qPCR-Panel-3 comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Virulence fimbrial genes from Escherichia coli F5, F17 and F41 detection by using qPCR. Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some serotypes are pathogenic and can cause serious food poisoning in animals and humans. Fimbriae are adhesion organelles expressed by many Gram-negative bacteria. They facilitate adherence to mucosal surfaces and inflammatory cells and are considered as virulence factors of E. coli. F5, F17 and F41 are relevant fimbrial genes related with enterotoxigenic and uropathogenic strains of E. coli.
