Staphylococcus aureus is a dangerous pathogen that causes a variety of severe diseases. Among nosocomial pathogens, S. aureus is the most common and associated with high morbidity and mortality. The versatility of S. aureus as a pathogen stems from the fact that S. aureus strains possess a varying repertoire of virulence factors. Many S. aureus virulence factors can be described as toxins. Toxins are usually defined as poisonous substances molecules that increase the potential of a pathogen to cause disease in a broader sense. This review will give an overview over S. aureus toxins focusing of how leukotoxins work.
Keywords: Staphylococcus aureus, nosocomial pathogens, virulence factors, Toxins, Leukotoxins
