  • 2. Escherichia coli
      • Normal inhabitant of the G.I. tract
      • Some strains cause various forms of gastroenteritis.
      • Is a major cause of urinary tract infection and neonatal meningitis and septicemia.
  • 3. Morphology and culture characteristics
    • Morphology
      • Gram negative rods
      • Non-spore former, non-caspulated and motile
    • Culture characteristics
      • N.agar – circular, convex, small colonies
      • MacConkey medium – rose pink
      • Eosin Methylene blue – Metallic sheen colonies
  • 4.
    • Biochemical reactions
    • IMViC: ++--
    • TSI: Acid butt/acid slant with gas production
  • 5. Antigenic structure
    • Has O, H, and K antigens.
    • K1 has a strong association with virulence, particularly meningitis in neonates.
  • 6.
    • Antigenic structure .
    • Complex
    • Lipopolisaccharides/ Somatic or O antigen
      • Heat stable.more than 150 types
      • Most external in the cell wall
      • detected by bacterial agglutination
      • Antibody produced is predominantly IgM
  • 7.
    • Capsular/K antigen
      • Sometimes external to O antigen but not always
      • Can be polysaccharides or protein
    • Flagella /H antigen
      • Heat and alcohol labile.
  • 8.
    • Colicines/Bacteriocines
    • Produced by many Gram -ves
    • Virus like bactericidal substance
    • Active against some other bacteria of similar
    • or closely related species
  • 9. E. coli toxins
      • Virulence factors
        • Toxins
          • Enterotoxins – produced by enterotoxigenic strains of E. coli (ETEC). Causes a movement of water and ions from the tissues to the bowel resulting in watery diarrhea. There are two types of enterotoxin:
            • LT – is heat labile and binds to specific Gm 1 gangliosides on the epithelial cells of the small intestine where it stimulates production of cAMP.
            • Increased cAMP alters the activity of sodium and chloride transporters producing an ion imbalance that results in fluid transport into the bowel.
  • 10. E. coli toxins
            • ST – is heat stable and binds to specific receptors to stimulate the production of cGMP with the same results as with LT.
  • 11. Urinary tract infections
    • E coli is the most common cause of UTI
      • Account for 90% of cases in young women
    • Symptoms
      • Frequency, dysuria, hematuria, pyuria
    • UTI may lead to bacteremia and sepsis
    • Nephropathogenic E coli produces hemolysin
  • 12.

  • 14.
    • A.Enterotoxigenic E coli ( ETEC)
      • Common cause for travelers diarrhoea , and watery diarrhoea in children.

      • Associated with hemorrhagic colitis, severe form of diarrhoea.
      • Hemolytic uremic syndrome Disease can be prevented by thorough cooking .
  • 17. Escherichia coli O157:H7
    • This strain produces a powerful toxin, verotoxin, which can cause severe illness and death.
    • E coli O157:H7 does not ferment sorbitol and is negative on sorbitol MacConkey agar
    • Other Shiga toxin producing serotypes (e.g. O111 and O26) are also in the family of enterohemorrhagic E. coli and can cause similar disease.
    • Hemorrhagic colitis – preventable by thorough cooking of meat
  • 18.
    • Hemorrhagic colitis(HC) or bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps
    • Lasts for 5-10 days usually
    • Infection may proceed to Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a severe cytopathic attack on the kidneys requiring intensive care and dialysis.
    • Red blood cells are destroyed requiring blood tranfusion
  • 19.
    • D. Enteroinvasive E coli (EIEC)
    • Produces disease similar to shigellosis .
    • In adults this has been isolated with Shigella
    • Commonly affect children in developing countries ,
    • and travelers.
    • Disease is due to invasion into mucosal cells of the intestine
