Cytolytic toxins from gram-negative bacteria.


Many Gram-negative bacterial pathogens synthesize cytolytic toxins as virulence factors. Most of these toxins generate pores in eukaryotic cell membranes, but there are apparently several different mechanisms of pore formation. Cytolysins of Gram-negative bacteria are usually synthesized as precursor proteins which are converted to the active toxins by… (More)
