Title: Escherichia coli UTI89 : Uropathogenic strain      
keywords:
Genome sequencing
ID:
PRJNA16259
description:
Escherichia coli strain UTI89. This strain (UTI89) is a uropathogenic strain isolated from a woman with uncomplicated cystitis (bladder inflammation) that has been demonstrated to cause cystitis in a murine urinary tract infection model. The genome of UTI89 showed 4 pathogenicity islands. A plasmid was found that was similar to the F plasmid but which also contained virulence genes. Comparison of a set of orthologs from this organism with other E. coli strains showed positive selection on some genes, including those for iron acquisition. Comparison with additional sequences (found in Accession Numbers DQ389000:DQ389068 and DQ440980:DQ441250) of a subset of genes from a number of isolates from patients with UTI infections and isolates from healthy individuals showed positive selection of fepE and amiA genes and some weakly positive selection for ompC.
