This Brief will review the methods that are currently available for the detection, isolation, and typing of pathogenic E. coli with a particular focus on foodborne diseases caused by the Shiga toxigenic E. coli group, which have been implicated in a number of significant outbreaks in recent years. Pathogenic forms of E. coli can cause a variety of diarrheal diseases in hosts due to the presence of specific colonization and virulence factors, and pathogenicity-associated genes, which are generally not present in other E. coli. Six pathotypes of pathogenic E. coli are recognized (Shiga toxigenic E. coli, Enteropathogenic E. coli, Enterotoxigenic E. coli, Enteroinvasive E. coli, Enteroaggregative E. coli and Diffusely Adherent E. coli) and certain strains among these groups are major public health concerns due to the severity of disease that they can cause. Methods to detect and isolate these pathogens from a variety of sources are constantly evolving. In addition, the accumulation of knowledge on these pathogens allows for improved intervention strategies.

The 2e of Escherichia coli is a unique, comprehensive analysis of the biology and molecular mechanisms that enable this ubiquitous organism to thrive. Leading investigators in the field discuss the molecular basis of E. coli pathogenesis followed by chapters on genomics and evolution. Detailed descriptions of distinct strains reveal the molecular pathogenesis of each and the causes of intestinal and extra-intestinal infections in humans. This work concludes with a presentation of virulence factors common to two or more pathotypes. The

Although most strains of E. coli bacteria are harmless and live in the intestines of healthy humans and animals, several strains can produce powerful toxins and cause severe illness in humans. This versatile pathogen is best known for being transmitted to humans through contaminated foods — such as undercooked meat and unpasteurized fruit juice — and has attracts much attention when serious outbreaks occur. E. coli is capable of causing a wide variety of diseases — from urinary tract infections to meningitis. A

Bacterial diarrheal diseases remain an important leading cause of preventable death, especially among children under five in developing countries. In the American continent, diarrheal disease and other health complications caused by Escherichia coli constitute a major public health problem, and, therefore, several research groups have dedicated their effort to understand this pathogen and provide feasible solutions to prevent, treat and reduce E. coli infections. The Latin American Coalition for Escherichia coli Research (LACER) was created as a multidisciplinary network of

Uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) are a genotypically diverse subset of extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli that cause urinary tract infections. UPEC have evolved from commensal E. coli by acquisition of virulence factors through horizontal gene transfer. Through reductive evolution, asymptomatic bacteriuria strains have evolved from UPEC to live a commensal-like lifestyle in the urinary tract. UPEC, unlike diarrheagenic E. coli, have no core set of virulence factors; instead, this pathotype uses flagella to ascend the urinary tract, and a variety of

In addition to the well-established and extensively studied categories of pathogenic E. coli, there are other groups of E. coli associated with diarrheal and/or inflammatory bowel diseases that have not been thoroughly characterized or which are considered newly emergent pathogens. This chapter focuses on three representatives of these groups of pathogenic E. coli and the current progress understanding their role in pathogenesis. Diffusely adherent E. coli (DAEC) are a collection of isolates that colonize the small bowel, considered potentially

Escherichia coli is a facultative anaerobic Gamma-proteobacterium, which belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae. While being an important constituent of the normal gut microbiota, specialized E. coli clones have acquired genetic elements that allow them to compete with the endogenous commensals, colonise normally sterile niches and cause disease. E. coli pathotypes can cause intestinal and extra intestinal infections (e.g. UTI, sepsis) and associate with mammalian cells while being extra- or intra-cellular. In recent years, E. coli infections have become a

Although E. coli is primarily a commensal of mammals, and to a lesser extent birds, it can be isolated from a variety of host species as well as soil, sediments, and water. It has long been recognized that E. coli exhibits quite extensive substructuring and that the relative abundance of the most common phylo-groups varies with respect to host age and sex, host species, as well as geographical location. Strains belonging to some phylo-groups are much more frequently encountered in

Pathogenic Escherichia coli strains cause a large number of diseases in humans, including diarrhea, hemorrhagic colitis, hemolytic uremic syndrome, urinary tract infections, and neonatal meningitis, while in animals they cause diseases such as calf scours and mastitis in cattle, post-weaning diarrhea and edema disease in pigs, and peritonitis and airsacculitis in chickens. The different E. coli pathotypes are characterized by the presence of specific sets of virulence-related genes. Therefore, it is not surprising that pathogenic E. coli constitutes a genetically

E. coli is the most common Gram-negative organism causing neonatal meningitis and neonatal meningitis continues to be an important cause of mortality and morbidity throughout the world. Our incomplete knowledge of its pathogenesis and pathophysiology contributes to such mortality and morbidity. Recent reports of neonatal meningitis caused by E. coli strains producing CTX-M-type or TEM-type extended-spectrum β-lactamases create a challenge. E. coli invasion of the blood–brain barrier is a prerequisite for penetration into the brain, and requires specific microbial–

Escherichia coli isolates produce a range of cell-surface polysaccharides which mediate interactions between the bacteria and their environment. The best-studied glycoconjugates are lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and capsular polysaccharide (CPS). LPS is a component of the outer membrane in all E. coli strains and it plays a critical role in the barrier properties of the cell envelope and resistance to host factors including cationic antimicrobial peptides and the complement system. LPS is also a biologically active molecule that activates TLR4-mediated signaling

Escherichia coli are leading causes of diarrhea in children from less developed areas of the world and in travelers from industrialized countries visiting these regions. They are increasingly recognized as pathogens in high income countries, where the mode of transmission is frequently via food and waterborne vehicles. Based on their pathogenic phenotypes and the diseases that they cause, diarrheagenic E. coli have been classified into 6 groups: enteropathogenic (EPEC), enterotoxigenic (ETEC), enteroinvasive (EIEC), enteroaggregative (EAEC), diffusely adherent (DAEC), and Shiga toxin
