High impact information on fliC


Biological context of fliC


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of fliC

  • The E. coli detection assay consists of a triplex PCR amplification targeting genes that encode 16S ribosomal RNA, the fliC flagellar antigen, and the sltI shigatoxin [7].
  • The fliC genotyping method is advantageous over serotyping and is useful for epidemiological investigations and studies of the evolution of STEC clones [5].
