Abstract The determinants for a haemolysin from an extraintestinal isolate of Citrobacter freundii have been cloned and expressed in both Escherichia coli K12 and phylogenetically related bacteria. Compared with E. coli, where the haemolytic determinants are encoded in 7.5 kb, the hemolysin determinants of C. freundii are located on a 2.5-kb HindIII fragment in the recombinant plasmid PJP71. Chicken embryo tests indicate that this haemolysin does contribute to the pathogenicity of C. freundii.
