Corynebacterium diphtheriae infects the nasopharynx or skin, multiplying and secreting diphtheria toxin in nasopharyngeal or skin lesions. The diphtheria toxin is exceptionally potent with as little as 100-150 ng/kg of body weight being a lethal dose in susceptible individuals. Diphtheria toxin expression is under the control of an iron-activated repressor, DtxR. The dissociation of iron and DtxR under low iron conditions activates the tox gene, leading to its synthesis and secretion.
