Vibrio vulnificus is an estuarine bacterium that causes septicemia and serious wound infection. Cytolysin produced by V. vulnificus has been incriminated as one of the important virulence determinants of bacterial infection. Cytolysin (8 hemolytic units) given intravenously to mice via their tail veins caused severe hemoconcentration and lethality. Cytolysin treatment greatly increased pulmonary wet weight and vascular permeability as measured by (125)I-labeled albumin leakage without affecting… Expand
