Neuraminidase (sialidase), a potential virulence factor in bacteria, was demonstrated in Haemophilus parasuis, an invasive swine pathogen, but not in four other pathogens of the Pasteurellaceae family: H. influenzae, H. somnus, H. paragallinarum, or Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae. H. parasuis neuraminidase had an acidic pH optimum and a specificity for several substrates also cleaved by other bacterial neuraminidases. Similar to the neuraminidase of Pasteurella multocida, H. parasuis… CONTINUE READING
