Gamma-hemolysin (HlgCB)

Accession VIRO:0000583
Definitiongamma-hemolysin is a type of bicomponent toxin produced by Staphylococcus aureus. Each of these toxins is made as two nonassociated secreted proteins, referred to as S and F components. The gene of γ-hemolysin produces 2 S components (HlgA and HlgC) and 1 F component (HlgB). These three genes creates two functional gamma-hemolysins which are HlgAB and HlgCB
