Extrachromosomal Characters as Determinants of Pathogenicity in Enterobacteriaceae

  • B. Wiedemann


There is not much known about the determinants of pathogenicity in Enterobacteriaceae, although the biological properties of the endotoxins are fairly well established; however, this is only one component of the pathogenicity. There is a great variety of organisms causing similar infections, but also a great variety of diseases like enteritis, typhoid, pyelonephritis, bronchitis, etc. The Enterobacteriaceae have various characteristics, which enable this group of organisms to cause infectious processes. The extrachromosomally determined ones are of special interest within this group.
