Pasteurella pneumotropica is an opportunistic pathogen that causes lethal pneumonia in immunodeficient rodents. The virulence factors of this bacterium remain unknown. In this study, we identified the genes encoding two RTX toxins, designated as pnxI and pnxII, from the genomic DNA of P. pneumotropica ATCC 35149 and characterized with respect to hemolysis. The pnxI operon was organized according to the manner in which the genes encoded the structural RTX toxin (pnxIA), the type I secretion… CONTINUE READING
