The Relationship Between The Chemical Nature Of Bacterial Endotoxins And Their Toxicity And Immunogenicity

The chemical nature of bacterial endotoxins has an effect on the toxicity that these endotoxins cause in other organisms, as well as on the immunogenic effects generated in the organism. In general, bacterial endotoxins are complexes formed by lipopolysaccharide molecules found in the cell membranes of Gram-negative bacteria. The diseases related to Gram-negative bacteria affect humans and animals and, in many cases, are difficult to treat, which is why is important to have effective and bacteria-specific antibiotics.
