We developed a single multiplex PCR reaction to detect ETEC, EPEC, EIEC, and STEC, using specific previously described (4-6) or new primers (GIBCO-BRL, Gaithersburg, MD) for diverse virulence traits (Table 1).
ETEC produce secretory toxins (enterotoxins); EPEC adhere intimately to epithelial cells and induce host cell transmembrane signaling; EIEC invade eukaryotic cells; and STEC produce Shiga toxins.
