Technical Data
C4275-35M
Cholera Toxin, beta (Cholera Enterotoxin beta, Choleragenoid, CTX B, CTXB, CTX-B, TOXB, VC1456)
Description:
The Beta subunit of cholera toxin binds to a GM1-ganglioside receptor which is widely accepted to initiate toxin action by triggering uptake and delivery of the toxin Alpha subunit into cells. The holotoxin consists of a pentameric ring of Beta subunits whose central pore is occupied by the Alpha subunit. The Alpha subunit contains two chains, A1 and A2, linked by a disulfide bridge. The Alpha subunit (and Cholera toxin) activate the adenylate cyclase enzyme in cells of the intestinal mucosa leading to increased levels of intracellular cAMP.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Titer: >1:1000 by ELISA

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
