As is the case with several other bacterial species, there are strains of E. coli that produce haemolysins. The production may be detected by the use of red blood cells in solid growth media or in other lysis assays. Here we are summarizing findings about properties of three haemolysins/cytolysins: the α-haemolysin (HlyA), the EHEC-Hly and the ClyA (SheA, HlyE) proteins that are found in different E. coli read more ...
