A Formula of Bacterial Pathogenicity (Theoretical Review): Recent Development | Chapter 10 | Current Research Trends in Biological Science Vol. 1

Four fundamental biological functions are responsible for bacterial pathogenicity in a multi-cellular host organism: The adhesive function, the function of invasion and penetration into the cell, the function of evasion of host defense and the damage function. The action of the first three of them (adhesion, invasion and evasion) is directed to towards establishing an ecological niche in Multicellular host, while the aim of the damaging function is destruction of this environment.

Phenomenon of Bacterial Pathogenicity as a Function of Bo-molecules | Chapter 12 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 3

The bacterial pathogenicity phenomenon is the poly-functional biological potency of germs that are realized by factors (determinants) of pathogenicity (PF) in multi-cellular organism.  

Biological functions are responsible for bacterial pathogenicity in a multi-cellular host organism: the adhesive function, the function of invasion and penetration into the cell, the function of evasion of host defense, and the damage function. Factors of pathogenicity are representative bio-molecules possessed different functional activity. The ligand – receptor interaction of bacterial PF and receptors on eukaryotic cells is the basis of specific lesions caused by the pathogen.
