  1. a) All strains were from human faeces, except the O186:H45 strain which was from faeces of a domestic cat. In bold: serotypes previously associated with Stx-production [3]. H-type in [brackets] indicates presence of non-motile strains that were were investigated for their fliC genotype [44].
  2. b) this strain was positive for the EHEC virulence associated katP gene
