Comparisons of recently published primary sequences of staphylococcal and streptococcal pyrogenic toxins prompted an evaluation of biological and immunological properties of the C terminus of staphylococcal enterotoxin C1. The 59 N-terminal amino acids were deleted from the toxin by digestion with trypsin. The resulting fragment (Mr, 20,659) contained the remaining 180 C-terminal residues. This fragment (Trp F1) consisted of two polypeptide chains (Trp F1a and Trp F1b) linked by cysteine… CONTINUE READING
