E. coli and colorectal cancer, a complex relationship that deserves a critical mindset

Crit Rev Microbiol. 2018 Jun 17:1-14. doi: 10.1080/1040841X.2018.1481013 Trudy M. Wassenaar Abstract To the multiple factors that may eventually result in colorectal cancer (CRC), strains of E. coli have now been added, in particular strains producing colibactin from their polyketide synthesis (pks) locus. The evidence and mechanistic explanations for this unfortunate effect of what is in…
