Comparison of the nucleotide sequences of the genes encoding the KS71A and F7(1) fimbrial antigens of uropathogenic Escherichia coli.


DNA fragments encompassing the genes for the KS71A and F7(1) fimbrial subunits of Escherichia coli strains KS71 (O4:K12) and AD110 (O6:K2), respectively, have been subjected to DNA sequencing. The nucleotide sequences of the two fimbrillin genes were identical and they encode a polypeptide of 187 amino acids of which 21 amino acids probably will constitute the signal sequence. The primary structure of these fimbrillins showed significant homology with the primary structure of other E. coli fimbrillins.
