Table 2 Metal concentrations measured in the filtered bovine digestive contents used to incubate EHEC EDL933

From: Transcriptional analysis reveals specific niche factors and response to environmental stresses of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7 in bovine digestive contents

  Metal mean concentration in the contents ± SEM (mg/Kg)
Metal rumen Small intestinea rectumb
Co 0.006 ± 0.001 0.018 0.016 ± 0.02
Cr 0.012 ± 0.002 0.015 0.004 ± 0.001
Ni 0.004 ± 0.001 0.031 0.046 ± 0.002
Cu 0.071 ± 0.039 0.376 0.117 ± 0.044
Zn 0.159 ± 0.004 4.139 0.426 ± 0.339
Cd 0.012 ± 0.015 0.005 0.004 ± 0.0004
Pb 0.118 ± 0.015 0.227 0.200 ± 0.036
  1. a: only one sample of small intestine content was available for metal quantifications
  2. b: rectum content was diluted 1:1 with buffer
  3. The concentrations were those measured in the DCs used for incubation
