Abstract The presence of subAB was investigated for 3,453 Escherichia coli strains of various pathogenic categories. the occurrence of other virulence genes in subAB-positive strains was investigated. the subAB operon was detected among some Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) serotypes devoid of eae and carrying ehxA. Most subAB-positive strains also harbored stx(2), iha, saa, and lpfA(O113).
