Figure. Representative XbaI pulsed-field gel electrophoresis patterns of Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O123:H– strains isolated from patient fecal samples and strains isolated from ground beef obtained from patients’ home, France, 2009. Lanes M, XbaI-digested genomic DNA from Salmonella enterica serovar Braenderup H9812 used as molecular mass markers; lane 1, Shiga toxin–producing STEC O123:H– isolated from patient with hemolytic uremic syndrome; lane 2, STEC O123:H– isolated from patient with diarrhea; lanes 3–6, STEC O123:H– isolated from ground beef from patients’ home; lanes 7 and 8, STEC O123 reference strains; lane 9, STEC 0111 isolate not related to the strains of the patients; lane 10, STEC 0157:H7 isolate not related to the strains of the patients.
