Yersinia. This genus consists of 11 species, 3 of which are human pathogens. Specific virulence factors are encoded within pathogenicity islands (PAIs) that are required for the invasive phenotype associated with Yersinia infections. These PAIs may be carried on extrachromosomal plasmids or on the chromosome. One key virulence plasmid More...
