KEGG   DISEASE: Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) infection
Entry
H00278                      Disease                                
Name
Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) infection
Description
Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) was the first pathotype of E. coli identified in the 1940s, and remains a common cause of infantile diarrhea in developing countries. EPEC and EHEC [DS:H00277] strains are characterized by the type III secretion system and its cognate effectors encoded in the locus of enterocyte effacement (LEE), but EPEC does not release diffusible toxins.
