Avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) shares some virulence attributes with strains of E. coli that cause extraintestinal infections in humans. The APEC is considered a possible cause for a zoonosis. The objective of this work was to determine the prevalence of twelve genes that are associated with virulence in a group of APEC isolates, as well as to identify the phylogenetic groups to which they belong. According to the results, one of these isolates harbors 91.6% of the virulence genes anddoi:10.21767/1989-5216.1000247 fatcat:54wakqkf5nhhnm2kxbu6k5dqna
