The special issue “Enterotoxins: Microbial Proteins and Host Cell Dysregulation” is comprised of research articles and reviews covering a diverse group of toxins that affect the gut and dysregulate host immune response in mechanistically different ways. Excellent in-depth reviews of staphylococcal superantigens and Clostridium perfringens toxins are the cornerstones of this issue. The present editorial highlights these papers grouped by toxin class and, within each toxin class, papers are discussed in order of publication date, with reviews appearing first, followed by original articles.
