Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IF
Bordetella pertussis is an aerobic, gram negative coccobacilli. It causes whooping cough (pertussis), an acute respiratory infection marked by severe, spasmodic coughing episodes during the paroxysmal phase. Leukocytosis with lymphocytosis is also common during this phase of the illness. Dangerous complications are bronchopneumonia and acute encephalopathy. It produces a number of virulence factors, including pertussis toxin, adenylate cyclase toxin, filamentous hemagglutinin, and hemolysin. Agglutinogens and other outer membrane proteins are important antigens. Pertussis toxin (islet activating protein) is the major protein toxin produced by virulent strains of Bordetella pertussis. As revealed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, the purified protein consists of five dissimilar subunits: S1 (MW 28kD), S2 (MW 23kD), S3 (MW 22kD), S4 (MW 11.7kD) and S5 (MW 9.3kD), in a molar ratio of 1:1:1:2:1. The A protomer, S1 is responsible for the enzymatic activity of the toxin. Together, S2, S3, S4 and S5 comprise the B oligomer, responsible for binding the toxin to the cell surface.
