Results of Verocytotoxin
detection among examine samples:
Rhamnose MacConkey (VTEC O26) Agar is selective for verocytotoxin
producing Escherichia coli O26.
The association of Verocytotoxin
and the classification hemolytic-uremic syndrome.
EHEC possesses the genes for intimin and for enterohaemolysin, in addition to the genes for verocytotoxin
coli (STEC), also known as verocytotoxin
or verotoxin producing E.
Escherichia coli enterohaemorrhagic (EHEC; also variously referred to as Verocytotoxin
Alongside these media is Rhamnose MacConkey (VTEC 026) Agar, selective for verocytotoxin
The cytotoxic effect is specific for Vero cell line and hence Stx is also known as verocytotoxin
coli are harmless, but those that produce verocytotoxin
can cause severe illness.
Of 16 VTEC, 15 carried the eae gene encoding the intimin and featured genetic determinants that produced a subtype of verocytotoxin
type 2 not described before, later designated VT2f (4-6).
Inhibitory effects of active compounds from Punica granatum pericarp on verocytotoxin
production by enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157: H7.
