Abstract EN

In this study, the biofilm formation, virulence factors and phylogenetic Groups of 42E.

coli isolates isolated from patients with UTI were determined.

It was revealed that (16.7 %) of the isolates were α-hemolytic, (21.4 %) were β-hemolytic while, (61.9 %) were γ-hemolytic.

Additionally, the percentage of biofilm formation was 50 % for both weak and moderate biofilm formation.

The results of molecular detection of virulence gene revealed that afagene was found in (21.21 %), kpsgene was found in (84.84 %), pap gene was found in (6.06 %) and sfagene in (60.60 %) of multi drug resistance isolates.

The phylogenetic group genes (chuA, yjaA, and TspE4.

C2) were found in multi-drug resistance isolates in percentages (72.72 %, 87.87 % and 72.72 %) respectively.

Most isolates were included under the phylogeny group B2 (69.7 %) of all multi drug resistance E.

coli isolates while the percentages of the rest of the groups were A (21.21 %), B1 (6.06 %) and D (3.03 %) of multi drug resistance isolates.
