Leukotoxin is an important and powerful tool expressed by the periodontal pathogen, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans. The high leukotoxic potential of the virulent JP2 genotype of A. actinomycetemcomitans has been studied extensively. In order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the leukotoxic potential of different genotypes of A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b, a geographically widespread collection of strains has been analyzed by several methods. The present study of the leukotoxic potential of both the JP2 and non-JP2 genotype strains of A.actinomycetemcomitans emphasizes the importance of using more than one method when assessing the leukotoxin-related virulence capacity of A. actinomycetemcomitans.
