Unformatted text preview: pathogens produce haustoria? 6. What role do pathogen produced toxins play in pathogenesis? How do host-specific toxins differ from non-host-specific toxins? 7. Some toxins are known to be required for pathogenicity and are known as pathogenicity factors while others enhance the ability of the pathogen to cause disease (increase virulence) and are thus know as virulence factors. 8.
