|Definition||Red polyenic pigment produced by the cyl operon involving genes cylX, cylD, cylG, acpC, cylZ, cylA, cylB, cylE, cylF, cylI, cylJ, and cylK. The expression of these genes creates a biosynthetic pathway for the production of this pigment, as well as β-haemolysin/cytolysin with which it is associated . It possess haemolytic activity associated with Streptococcus agalactiae. Functioning very similarly to the β-haemolysin/cytolysin that pathogenic strains of this species also produces.|
