During this process, adenosine-5'-diphosphate-ribosyl (ADP-ribose) moiety of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is transferred to eukaryotic elongation factor 2 (EF-2) which inactivates the EF-2 and ultimately inhibits protein synthesis.6,7 Exoenzyme S, coded by exoS gene, is an ADP-ribosyltransferase that modifies eukaryotic proteins by disturbing the Ras-mediated signal transduction pathway.8 Elastase B, coded by lasB gene, isazinc metalloprotease that destroys proteins involved in immune systems such as cytokines.9,10 The gene AlgD encodes alginate which is required for biofilm formation and protection from antibiotics and host immune response.11
