Bordetella pertussis is an aerobic, gram-negative bacterium that causes symptoms by producing multiple antigenic and biologically active components, including pertussis toxin, filamentous hemagglutinin, and agglutinogens. The bacteria adhere to the cilia in the respiratory tract and initiate an inflammatory cascade that paralyzes the cilia and inhibits the respiratory functions responsible for clearing secretions, largely through an immune-mediated response.
Bordetella pertussis has some important antigens such as pertussis toxin, adenylate cyclase, fimbriae, agglutinogens, Filamentous Hemagglutinin (FHA), pertactin and Outer Membrane Proteins (OMP).
