Biological context of uidA


Anatomical context of uidA

  • Beta-D-Glucuronidase activity among prototrophic and auxotrophic variants of Escherichia coli and other Enterobacteriaceae commonly implicated in urinary tract infections [19].
  • Enzyme activity remained stable under starvation and light stress conditions despite losses of culturability, respiratory activity, and cytoplasmic membrane integrity. beta-D-Glucuronidase activity followed the pattern of genetic and morphologic cell integrity [20].
  • DNA hybridization with SLT-specific oligonucleotide gene probes (detection of genes for SLT-I and SLT-II) was the "gold standard" for the evaluation of Vero cell cytotoxicity, fermentation of several saccharides, beta-D-glucuronidase activity and production of alpha-hemolysin (alpha-Hly) or enterohemolysin (E-Hly) [21].
