Did You Know - About E.coli?

E.coli is the common abbreviation for Escherichia coli.

Escherichia coli is named after Theodor Escherich.

E.coli is a rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms.

E.coli cells are a major component of feces.

Fecal-oral transmission is the major route through which pathogenic strains of E.coli cause disease.

E.coli cells are able to survive outside the body for a limited amount of time.

German pediatrician and bacteriologist Theodor Escherich discovered E.coli in 1885.

E.coli is a popular host organism for the majority of studies with recombinant DNA.

Harmless strains of E.coli are part of the normal flora of the gut, and can benefit their hosts by producing the fat-soluble vitamin K.

E.coli cells prevent the establishment of germs and pathogenic bacteria within the intestine.

Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some variations can cause serious food poisoning.
