The bacteria become non-pathogenic if they lose their plasmid or prophage. Examples of bacteria carrying virulence plasmids are the enterotoxigenic E. coli (diarrhoea-causing E. coli) which have plasmid genes encoding both their colonization factors (fimbriae) and enterotoxin. Diphtheria toxin, E. coli shiga toxins and some botulinum toxins are encoded by lysogenic bacteriophages (Chapter 5). Molecular pathogenesis In recent years this new term has been coined for the investigation of pathogenic mechanisms using a largely genetic approach.
Molecular pathogenesis In recent years this new term has been coined for the investigation of pathogenic mechanisms using a largely genetic approach. As the genomes of infectious agents and their hosts are determined it is possible to knock out key genes, both of putative virulence factors and of host defences (Chapter 8), to see the outcome. This field is still in its infancy but it has a massive potential.
