<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title><jats:p>Two-day-old (P2), but not 9-day-old (P9), rat pups are susceptible to systemic infection following gastrointestinal colonization by<jats:named-content xmlns:xlink="" content-type="genus-species" xlink:type="simple">Escherichia coli</jats:named-content>K1. Age dependency reflects the capacity of colonizing K1 to translocate from gastrointestinal (GI) tract to blood. A complex GI microbiota developed by P2, showed little variation over P2 to P9, and did not prevent stable K1 colonization. Substantial developmental expression was observed over P2 to P9, including upregulation of genes encoding com...
