Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an ubiquitous pathogen capable of infecting virtually all tissues. A large variety of virulence factors contribute to its importance in burn wounds, lung infection and eye infection. Prominent factors include pili, flagella, lipopolysaccharide, proteases, quorum sensing, exotoxin A and exoenzymes secreted by the type III secretion system.
