|Definition||Yersinia stable toxin (Yst) is a low-molecular-mass, heat-stable enterotoxin, characteristic only of the virulent strains of Yersinia enterocolitica. Yst is important in causing Yersinia-associated diarrhea. Studies show that virulent strains of Yersinia enterocolitica possess a degree of mutual exclusivity with respect to its toxins: YstA, YstB, or YstC|
