Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Its Toxins and Plant Cells
Y. pseudotuberculosis was able to grow in the presence of plant cells at low temperature. The bacteria were apparentlyable to produce factors that promoted adhesion and invasion to plant cells as well as toxins which caused pathogenic effects while interacting with plant cells. Taking into consideration the major differences between plant and mammalian cells it is very likely that Y. pseudotuberculosis uses different strategies of interaction with endo- and ectoterm organisms. However, the mechanisms of these processes are unknown.
