Abstract
F4+ enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are an important cause of diarrhoea and mortality in piglets. Currently, there is no reliable genetic test to screen for F4 receptor (F4R) negative pigs (F4+ ETEC resistant). Additionally, only one of the putative F4R(s) has been investigated for its role in the mucosal immunogenicity of F4 fimbriae. Our study aims to identify F4R(s) associated with F4+ ETEC susceptibility and mucosal immunogenicity.
