Virulence factorsBacteria
toxin adp-ribosylates EF-2, formation of pseudomembrane
multiplies in macrophages by preventing phagosome-lysosome fusion, stimulates cytokine release
alginate polysaccharide slime forms biofilms, drug efflux pumps
flagellum, fimbrial adhesins, g-protein ribosylating toxin
mycolic acid envelope, enzymes which subvert macrophages to eg, arrest trafficking, such as serine/threonine kinase
antiphagocytotic capsule, toxins to subvert macrophage function, endotoxin
pedestal formation, induction of inflamation
pedestal formation, shiga-like toxin, 0157 serotype is predominant
Virulence factorsBacteria
adhesins, capsule, M-protein, C5a peptidase, hyaluronidase, streptolysins O+S, streptokinase, DNAse
two secreted ribosylating toxinx that disrupt tight junctions and damage cells, formation of pseudomembranes
exotoxins including andenylate cyclase ribosylator, FHA adhesins
IgA protease, pnuemolysin, capsule
large animal resevoir, genes for survival inside macrophages including effectors to inhibit phagosome maturation
extremely motile flagella, urease, adhesins, induction of IL-8, CagA which increases cell proliferation
acid resistant proteins, toxin attenuates inflammatory response, can trigger macrophage apoptosis
colonises via adhesins, cholera-like toxin
