Background of Pneumolysin / PLY antibody

Pneumolysin (pneumococcal hemolysin) is an intracellular protein produced by all strains of S. pneumoniae (1) and is a cytoplasmic cholesterol-dependent cytolysin forming large pores in cholesterol containing membranes and are therefore cytotoxic to mammalian cells (2). The molecular weight of Pneumolysin is approximately 53 kDa.
