  A total of 30 strains of Escherichia coli O157:H7 isolated from beef and chicken burger were characterized by Enterobacterial Repetitive Intragenic Consensus (ERIC) genotyping. The ERIC polymorphism patterns obtained as illustrated in a dendrogram showed a significant discriminatory fingerprint among the 30 E. coli O157:H7 strains. Nearly every isolates had a unique fingerprint and that there were no bands that were highly conserved among the isolates. This study suggests that there is considerable genetic heterogeneity among the E. coli O157:H7 strains by ERIC PCR, and that this has application in screening strains from clinical or food samples to detect a virulent strain with a known fingerprint, and to trace its dissemination.

  A total of 70 isolates of Escherichia coli O157:H7 isolated from beef samples were examined with respect to plasmid profiles and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) patterns. All isolates carried the 90 kb pO157 plasmid alone or in combination with other smaller plasmids. Using Gen1-50-02 (5’-CAATGCGTCT-3’), Gen1-50-09 (5’-AGAGGCGATG-3’) and Gen1-50-10 (5’-CCATTTACGC-3’) as primers, respectively, we obtained DNA polymorphisms which allowed us to discriminate the E. coli O157:H7 isolates into one, six and five RAPD patterns; providing bands ranging in size from 0.25 to 4.0 kb. Our results demonstrate that both plasmid profiling and RAPD-PCR fingerprinting methods are suitable tools for a fast and reliable molecular typing of E. coli O157:H7. The RAPD-PCR method is more sensitive with respect to the individualization of isolates and that RAPD-PCR assay could be a valuable technique for epidemiological studies.
