A vertical collapse of the pre‐pore of 40 Å allows the insertion of the β‐barrel into the membrane and formation of a large membrane pore 300–450 Å in diameter.

Role of cholesterol‐dependent cytolysins in pathogenesis Clostridial CDCs are mainly involved in gangrene lesions by contributing to ­tissue destruction and preventing bacterial lysis by host immune cells.

Indeed, TcsL and the other LCGTs induce paxilline dephosphorylation in a Rac‐dependent manner, leading to disassembly of the focal adhesions, a­ dherens junctions, and actin filament disorganization. TcdA and TcdB disrupt apical and basal actin filaments and subsequently disorganize the ultrastructure and com­ ponent distribution (ZO‐1, ZO‐2, occludin, claudin) of tight junctions, whereas E‐cadherin junctions show little alteration. In contrast, TcsL, which only m ­ odifies Rac among the Rho proteins, alters the permeability of intestinal cell m ­ onolayers, causing a redistribution of E‐cadherin, whereas tight junctions are not signifi­ cantly affected.
