The beta-toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus intermedius were purified to homogeneity from culture supernatants. Although the toxin from S. aureus has been throughly studied, less is known about its unique counterpart from S. intermedius. This is the first reported purification and analysis of the S. intermedius beta-toxin. Both toxins have similar enzymatic properties, belong to the class of neutral sphingomyelinases C, and have a high specificity for sphingomyelin… CONTINUE READING
