Background: Urinary tract infections (UTI) are among the most frequent pathologies worldwide. Uropatho-genic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is the leading etiological agent; however, depending on the patient's characteristics, the etiology may include some atypical pathogens. Some pathogenic bacteria can internalize in the urothelial and phagocytic cells...

Multi-drug resistant (MDR) bacteria have gained importance as a health problem worldwide, and novel antibacterial agents are needed to combat them. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been studied as a potent antimicrobial agent, capable of countering MDR bacteria; nevertheless, their conventional synthesis methods can produce cytotoxicity and enviro...

Escherichia coli is a well-recognized inhabitant of the animal and human gut. Its presence represents an essential component of the microbiome. There are six pathogenic variants of E. coli associated with diarrheal processes, known as pathotypes. These harbor genetic determinants that allow them to be classified as such. In this work, we report the...
Article
Escherichia coli is among the most prevalent food contaminant microorganisms that have evolved, generating variants based on their effects on the host; these include commensals or pathobiont strains. The last classifications of E. coli intestinal pathobionts found in this review are enteroinvasive, enterohemorrhagic, enteropathogenic, enterotoxigen...

Article
There is increased evidence demonstrating the association between Crohn's Disease (CD), a type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), and non-diarrheagenic Adherent/Invasive Escherichia coli (AIEC) isolates. AIEC strains are phenotypically characterized by their adhesion, invasion and intra-macrophage survival capabilities. In the present study, the...

Background The widespread Escherichia coli clone ST131 implicated in multidrug-resistant infections has been recently reported, the majority belonging to O25:H4 serotype and classified into five main virotypes in accordance with the virulence genes carried. Methods Pathogenicity Islands I and II (PAI-I and PAI-II) were determined using conventiona...

Background: The widespread Escherichia coli clone ST131 implicated in multidrug‑resistant infections has been recently reported, the majority belonging to O25:H4 serotype and classified into five main virotypes in accordance with the virulence genes carried. Methods: Pathogenicity Islands I and II (PAI‑I and PAI‑II) were determined using convention...

INTRODUCCIÓN Escherichia coli es un habitante común del tracto gastrointestinal de la mayoría de los animales y humanos y puede contaminar fácilmente productos alimenticios, tanto de origen vegetal como animal, destinados al consumo humano; estas bacterias son reservorios de β-lactamasas de espectro extendido (BLEEs), siendo la del tipo CTX-M-15 un...

Characterization of five E. coli ST131 strains isolated from asymptomatic individuals. The strains were phenotyped as AIEC and by comparative genomics and phylogeny were assigned to a new pathotype.
Article
Purpose Broad-spectrum cephalosporin resistance is rapidly increasing in Escherichia coli, representing a food safety problem. The purpose of this paper is to characterize eight extended-spectrum-ß-lactamase (ESBL) and acquired AmpC ß-lactamase-producing E. coli isolates and virotypes associated, obtained from chicken and pork food samples in Pueb...
