PlcR is a pleiotropic regulator of extracellular virulence factor gene expression in Bacillus thuringiensis.

Abstract

Members of the Bacillus cereus group (B. anthracis, B. cereus, B. mycoides and B. thuringiensis) are well-known pathogens of mammals (B. anthracis and B. cereus) and insects (B. thuringiensis). The specific diseases they cause depend on their capacity to produce specific virulence factors, such as the lethal toxin of B. anthracis and the Cry toxins of B… (More)
