Bosse, Janine T; Janson, Håkan LU ; Sheehan, Brian J; Beddek, Amanda J; Rycroft, Andrew N; Kroll, J Simon and Langford, Paul R (2002) In Microbes and Infection 4(2). p.225-225
Abstract
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae causes porcine pleuropneumonia, a highly contagious disease for which there is no effective vaccine. This review considers how adhesins, iron-acquisition factors, capsule and lipopolysaccharide, RTX cytotoxins and other potential future vaccine components contribute to colonisation, to avoidance of host clearance mechanisms and to damage of host tissues.
