  1. a. designations assigned to strains deposited in the STEC Reference Center
  2. b. [h] – flagellar allele determined by fliC gene sequencing; H – expression of flagellar type confirmed by reaction to antisera. To avoid confusion in text, flagellar type will be denoted as H, regardless whether it was determined by sequencing or serologic typing.
  3. c. b. d. – bloody diarrhea; HUS – hemolytic uremic syndrome; scours – neonatal calf diarrhea.
  4. d. Year of isolation.
  5. e. ST – sequence type based on MLST of 7 housekeeping genes (aspC, clpX, fadD, icdA, lysP, mdh, and uidA).
