About this Research Topic
Bacterial toxins are potent virulence factors that have evolved exquisite specificity and efficiency in modulating the host at the cellular level. This Research Topic will highlight recent advances in our understanding of the molecular interactions of toxins with the host, the mechanisms by which toxins promote virulence, and the consequences of these actions on the outcome of infection.
