Escherichia coliO157:H7 EDL933, isolated in 1982 in the United States, was the first enterohemorrhagicE. coli(EHEC) strain sequenced. Unfortunately, European labs can no longer receive the original strain. We checked three European EDL933 derivatives and found major genetic deviations (deletions, inversions) in two strains. All EDL933 strains contain the cryptic EHEC-plasmid, not reported before. Copyright © 2016 Fellner et al.
