A Chromosomal Locus Which Controls the Ability of Shigella flexneri to Evoke Keratoconjunctivitis.

Abstract

The primary step in the pathogenesis of bacillary dysentery is the penetration of intestinal epithelial cells by shigellae. Lacking this capacity, Shigella flexneri becomes avirulent. By means of intergeneric conjugation between various Escherichia coli K-12 Hfr strains and S. flexneri 2a virulent recipients and by reciprocal transduction analysis with… (More)
