Abstract

An anonymous 14.9-kb rrn-containing HindIII fragment is strongly linked to Escherichia coli strains causing neonatal meningitis. We show in this report that this fragment does not encode new virulence factors but lacks arpA, a gene common in avirulent E. coli strains, and we developed a PCR test to detect this fragment.
