Stx1 production is partially dependent on phage induction, whereas Stx2 production is strongly dependent on phage induction (44-46).
Consistent with a previous report (47), the Stx1 concentration was not notably elevated by phage induction in any of the strains, and no clear difference was observed between the GP STEC O157:H7 and typical STEC O157:H7 strains (Figure 4, panel B).
When we further examined Stx phage induction by bAGPs with 3 stx2+/stx1- E.
