Abstract In 2011, Shiga toxin 2 (Stx2)-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) of the rare serotype O104:H4 caused one of the world’s largest outbreaks of hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome. The causative strains of this pathogen may have evolved from enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC). We determined .. [more]
