cytolysin operon

Accession VIRO:0000055
DefinitionEnterococcal cytolysin is a structurally novel bacterial toxin expressed by some strains of Enterococcus faecalis and is distantly related to the class of bacteriocins known as lantibiotics. The cytolysin can be encoded by large pheromone-responsive plasmids, or on the chromosome within pathogenicity island. It is produced by a complex process that involves the products of eight genes, designated cylR1, cylR2, cylLL, cylLS, cylM, cylB, cylA, and cylI.
