Enterotoxins are exotoxin proteins that are released by a certain type of bacteria that targets the intestines.

Endotoxin is a lipopolysaccharide located on the exterior cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria causing toxic reactions in the infected patient.

Staphylokinase is a protein produced by Staphylococcus aureus that combines with plasminogen and has profibrinolytic properties.

Coagulase is an enzyme that enables the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin leading to blood clotting.
