The structure of a Staphylococcus aureus leucocidin component (LukF-PV) reveals the fold of the water-soluble species of a family of transmembrane pore-forming toxins.
BACKGROUND Leucocidins and gamma-hemolysins are bi-component toxins secreted by Staphylococcus aureus. These toxins activate responses of specific cells and form lethal transmembrane pores. TheirExpand
