- Fedhila S, Nel P, Lereclus D. The InhA2 metalloprotease of Bacillus thuringiensis strain 407 is required for pathogenicity in insects infected via the oral route. J Bacteriol. 2002;184:3296-304 pubmed..These results indicate that the B. thuringiensis InhA2 zinc metalloprotease has a vital role in virulence when the host is infected via the oral route...
- Guillemet E, Cadot C, Tran S, Guinebreti re M, Lereclus D, Ramarao N. The InhA metalloproteases of Bacillus cereus contribute concomitantly to virulence. J Bacteriol. 2010;192:286-94 pubmed publisher..Taken together, these results show that the InhA metalloproteases of B. cereus are important virulence factors that may allow the bacteria to counteract the host immune system...
