Genetics and pathogenic role of Escherichia coli hemolysin

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:bvb:20-opus-40082
  • While clear evidence exists for the direct involvement of cytolysins in the pathogenesis of Gram-positive bacteria, the significance of Gram-negative haemolysins remains unclear. This paper presents briefly data indicating a role for haemolysin production in infections caused by Escherichia coli and also experiments which have allowed an analysis of the molecular basis of the haemolysis among pathogenic and non-pathogenic strains of this species.
