hyaluronidase and collagenase both allow bacteria to _____.
- Adhere to body cell
- Interfere with complement
- Invade a host’s tissues
- Escape detection by the host
The answer is: C. Invade a host’s tissues
Explanation: The enzyme hyaluronidase and collagenase are the ability to degrade hyaluronic acid and collagen respectively which are the components of the extracellular matrix found in the epithelial tissue.
By producing these enzymes bacterium is able to invade a host’s tissues by eating away the extracellular matrix and increasing bacterial virulence.
