Host gastro-intestinal dynamics and the frequency of colicin production by Escherichia coli

Barnes, Belinda; Sidhu, Harvinder; Gordon, David

Description

The production of antimicrobial compounds known as colicins has been shown to be an important mediator of competitive interactions among Escherichia coli genotypes. There is some understanding of the forces responsible for determining the frequency of colicin production in E. coli populations; however, this understanding cannot explain all of the observed variation. A survey of colicin production in E. coli isolated from native Australian mammals revealed that the frequency of colicin...[Show more]
