Abstract: The expression of PCF0159 fimbriae by a ETEC Escherichia coli strain was blocked by using transposon TnphoA. The plasmidial DNA sequence which includes the insertion of the transposon was cloned and used as a DNA probe against E. coli strains expressing different colonization factors and enterotoxins. The DNA probe was specific only for those strains belonging either to the serotype 0159:H4 or carrier strains which expressed PCF0159 fimbriae operons.
