The effect of lsr operon on transcriptional profiles of virulence-related genes. The qPCR results showed that there was no significant difference of fimH mRNA level between lsr mutant strains and APEC94 or lsr-APEC94Δlsr (p > 0.05). However, the mRNA levels of five genes (fliD, flhA, dosP, pgaA and fhuD) were significantly decreased in lsr mutant strain, as compared to APEC94 (p < 0.05).
