Two typical coliforms from an intestinal biopsy from an adult case of bloody diarrhoea carried genes encoding intimin-ß, stx1 and ehxA, and produced verocytotoxin 1 and enterohaemolysin in culture. Both were biochemically typical Escherichia coli O5 : H-, apart from producing urease. Such O5 isolates represent a human pathogenic E. coli lineage.
