Resumo The longus type IV pilus gene (IngA) was highly prevalent (32.8%) among Brazilian enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli strains producing both heat-labile and heat-stable enterotoxins and bearing the CFA/I, CS1CS3, or CS6 antigen. Furthermore, IngA was more often found in strains isolated from children with diarrhea than in strains isolated from children without diarrhea.
