Abstract

When Shigella species, Escherichia coli, and five other bacterial enteric pathogens isolated from children with diarrhea in Thailand were tested for hybridization under stringent conditions with probes for Shiga-like toxins I and II, only 30 Shigella dysenteriae 1 hybridized with the Shiga-like toxin I probe.
