In a minority of the porcine enteropathogenic strains of Escherichia coli examined through Smith and Halls (1968) and Smith and Gyles (1970a), enterotoxin manufacturing became proven to be managed with the aid of a transmissible plasmid unique "Ent Ent+ organisms are recognized through the reality that they motive dilatation of ligated segments of pig small intestine into which they were injected. Due to the fact little more than 60 tests can be finished in a single pig, it is, therefore, feasible to pick out most effective the ones strains that transmit Ent with excessive performance. That many more of the lines tested by Smith and Halls and Smith and Gyles might be able to transmit their capacity to supply enterotoxin, but at a charge too low to be detected, changed into counseled through the remark of Smith and Linggood (1970) that all except considered one of 78 porcine enterotoxigenic traces of E. coli possessed the genetic elements responsible for plasmid transmission, i.e., the sex, conjugation or transfer elements. They also found that 71%, of human enteropathogenic lines of E. coli, compared with 30 in step with cent, of non-pathogenic traces, possessed those elements. Due to this excessive occurrence in the human enteropathogenic traces and the truth that the enterotoxin of human strains is different from that of pig traces (Smith and Halls, 1967a and b; Smith and Gyles, 1970b), human traces had been tested to peer whether their enterotoxin production was transmissible; the results are suggested in this paper.

Transfer of Ability to Supply Enterotoxin

This changed into completed with the aid of amendment of the technique of Smith and Halls (1968) 0.2 ml of a broth lifestyle of a human enterotoxigenic pressure of E. coli (the donor pressure) and the identical quantity of a nalidixic acid-resistant mutant (nalr) of a lac???strain of E. coli K12F??? (the recipient stress) have been inoculated into 10 ml of nutrient broth, and the mixture became incubated at 37??? for 24 hr [1,2]. The combined way of life turned into then diluted with 10 ml of broth and incubation persisted for a similarly 24 hr. It was passaged twice in broth containing sodium nalidixate, 30 ?g per ml, to remove donor organisms, and then as soon as in plain broth; each passage was at 37??? for 24 hr [3]. After confirmation that this culture, known as the "very last mated lifestyle", contained organisms of the recipient strain best, an LT education became crafted from it and examined in a ligated phase of rabbit intestine. If dilatation resulted, LT arrangements had been made from cultures of individual colonies received from the very last mated way of life and tested. Cultures yielding pre-parations that brought on intestinal dilatation had been special by the quantity of the recipient strain, K12F???, accompanied by way of the quantity of the donor strain in brackets and the symbol Ent+; terrible cultures have been designated within the identical manner, besides that they had been given the symbol Ent???. Sometimes, nal1 mutants of strains other than E. coli K12F??? had been used as recipients [4,5].

Ligated Gut Approach

After Elizabethan collars had been implemented to save you coprophagy, young adult rabbits were starved for 24 hr. They had been anaesthetised through intravenous management of sodium pentobarbitone and the stomach became opened. Any particles within the small gut turned into washed out with the aid of injecting 20 ml of normal saline containing 100 ?g every of neomycin and polymixin in step with ml into its anterior portion. The small gut was divided by way of string ligatures into eight segments about 10 cm long and separated from every different by smaller segments 4 cm lengthy [6,7]. The LT arrangements have been injected into the longer segments. The maximum anterior segment began 30 cm from the belly and the maximum posterior one ended 10 cm from the caecum. The stomach turned into then closed and the rabbits were allowed to recover from anaesthesia. They had been killed 24 hr later and the presence or absence of dilatation of the segments and the quantity and person of the contained fluid had been recorded [8].


There appears no doubt that Escherichia coli K12F??? obtained the capability to dilate ligated segments of rabbit intestine from E. coli H19 for the duration of their boom in mixed tradition. The reciprocal neutralisation by means of particular antisera of the dilating substances or enterotoxins produced by K12F??? (H19) Ent+ and by H19 strongly supports this view. The opportunity that our mixed mating cultures of H19 and K12F??? were contaminated with extraneous enterotoxin-generating organisms became most not likely, because transmission changed into finished at each one among 4 tries [9]. The outcomes also indicated that the precise enterotoxin worried was normal of these produced with the aid of human enteropathogenic lines of E. coli, and that the H19 strain turned into commonplace in that it had, for instance, obtained a porcine Ent plasmid under natural situations; such plasmids can be added into human enteropathogenic lines experimentally (Smith and Halls, 1968). The most possibly clarification of our consequences is that enterotoxin production in HI9, like that during some porcine enteropathogenic strains, is managed by using a transmissible plasmid, and that we've got transferred it to K12F???[10].
