Studies on pathogenicity of Escherichia coli isolated from chickens



Abstract
The correlation between in vitro Congo-red binding properties of E coli and in vivo invasiveness of the organisms in SPF chickens and mice was investigated. Congo-red positive E coli eolonies were dark-red color with a typical colonial morphology of rough appearance when grown on Congo-red medium, while Congo-red negative colonies showed pale-pink color and smooth surfaced colonial morphology.
Pathogenicity of 10 Congo-red positive E coli for mice was observed in 92.5% but that of 5 Congo-red negative E coli was 45%.
Invasiveness of 10 Congo-red positive E coli for chickens was observed in 96% of the SPF chickens tested but that of 5 Congo-red negative E coli was 16% only.
These results of pathogenicity studies with E coli isolates indicate a significant correlation between Congo-red binding ability and virulence in avian Escherichia co1i.
