Melons™ L1 – The L1 Method – Escherichia Coli (EHEC)

The bacteria are relatively unusual in that they produce extended-spectrum β-lactamases — enzymes that render the bacteria resistant to many different antibiotics. Patients with E. coli infections are not typically treated with antibiotics anyway, because the bacteria are thought to respond to the medication by increasing production of the Shiga toxin, which can lead to the life-threatening complication haemolytic–uremic syndrome. But antibiotic resistance might have helped the bacteria to survive and persist in the environment.
