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