This report reviews the work of other investigators regarding Aeromonas toxins and describes work conducted in our laboratory relating to the biochemical characterization of a cytolytic factor with an antigenic moiety that cross-reacts with cholera toxin (referred to as CTC-cytolysin), as well as the purification and partial characterization of a non-CTC enterotoxin. These two toxins were produced by Aeromonas hydrophila, isolate SSU, and are capable of causing fluid accumulation in animal models.
