ExPEC are characterized by pathogenic virulence factor genes coding for various combinations of adhesins, toxins, iron-acquisition systems, capsule production, and toxins that enable them to cause disease once outside the host gut reservoir (32).

The high virulence of serotype O157:H7 is attributed to Stx2 production, LEE and accessory virulence factors carried on a plasmid, pO157 (21,38).
The study showed that Pseudomonas spp., Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., and Staphylococcus aureus were the key pathogens implicated in neonatal infections in the center with most being resistant to conventional antibiotics and possessing virulence factors. Staphylococcus aureus contributed most to the overall disease burden.
The Presence of Virulence Factors Is Common in the Clinical Cohort.
Association between the presence of enterococcal virulence factors gelatinase, hemolysin, and enterococcal surface protein and mortality among patients with bacteremia due to Enterococcus faecalis.
Watsky et al suggests that although virulence factors contribute to an organism's pathogenicity it is disruption of mucosal barriers which plays the major role in overcoming host defense.
Occurrence of virulence factors and antibiotic resistances in Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium collected from dairy and human samples in North Italy.
