Shiga Toxin: Expression, Distribution, and Its Role in the Environment

  title={Shiga Toxin: Expression, Distribution, and Its Role in the Environment},
  author={Steven A. Mauro and Gerald B. Koudelka},
In this review, we highlight recent work that has increased our understanding of the production and distribution of Shiga toxin in the environment. Specifically, we review studies that offer an expanded view of environmental reservoirs for Shiga toxin producing microbes in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. We then relate the abundance of Shiga toxin in the environment to work that demonstrates that the genetic mechanisms underlying the production of Shiga toxin genes are modified and… CONTINUE READING
