Virulence and Fitness Determinants of Uropathogenic Escherichia coli.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is a major global public health concern. Increasing antibiotic resistance found in clinical UPEC isolates underscores the immediate need for development of novel therapeuti

Host-specific induction of Escherichia coli fitness genes during human urinary tract infection.
Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is the predominant etiological agent of uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI), manifested by inflammation of the urinary bladder, in humans and is a major global public health concern. Molecular pathogenesi

Occurrence of genes encoding enterotoxins in uropathogenic Escherichia coli isolates.
To determine the presence of some toxins of diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) in uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC), 138 urinary tract infection (UTI)-causing UPECs were analyzed. The astA , set , sen and cdtB genes were detected in 13 (9.4%), 2 (1.3%),

Inflammation-Induced Adhesin-Receptor Interaction Provides a Fitness Advantage to Uropathogenic E. coli during Chronic Infection.
Uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) is the dominant cause of urinary tract infections, clinically described as cystitis. UPEC express CUP pili, which are extracellular fibers tipped with adhesins that bind mucosal surfaces of the urinary tract. Here we iden

Uropathogenic Escherichia coli-Associated Exotoxins.
Escherichia coli are a common cause of infectious disease outside of the gastrointestinal tract. Several independently evolved E. coli clades are common causes of urinary tract and bloodstream infections. There is ample epidemiological and in vitro e

Uropathogenic Escherichia coli Metabolite-Dependent Quiescence and Persistence May Explain Antibiotic Tolerance during Urinary Tract Infection.
In the present study, it is shown that although Escherichia coli CFT073, a human uropathogenic (UPEC) strain, grows in liquid glucose M9 minimal medium, it fails to grow on glucose M9 minimal medium agar plates seeded with ≤10(6) CFU. The cells on gl

Proteomic analysis of uropathogenic Escherichia coli.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common of bacterial infections in humans. Although a number of Gram-negative bacteria can cause UTIs, most cases are due to infection by uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC). Genomic studies have shown that

Prevalence of adhesive genes among uropathogenic Escherichia coli strains isolated from patients with urinary tract infection in Mangalore.
The study was carried out to detect the adhesive genes pap (pyelonephritis associated pili), sfa (S fimbrial adhesin) and afa (afimbrial adhesin) from Escherichia coli strains isolated in patients diagnosed with urinary tract infection (UTI). A total

Relationship of biofilm formation and different virulence genes in uropathogenic Escherichia coli isolates from Northwest Iran.
Hintergrund und Zielsetzung:Escherichia (E.) coli ist weltweit einer der wichtigsten Erreger von Harnweginfektionen (HWI). Seine Fähigkeit zur Biofilmbildung auf Devices wie Harnwegkatheter spielt eine wichtige Rolle bei der Entstehung von HWI. Ziels
