Comparison of the binding of cholera and Escherichia coli enterotoxins to Y1 adrenal cells.

Abstract

The binding of iodinated cholera and Escherichia coli (LT) enterotoxins to Y1 mouse adrenal cells was studied by using saturation analysis (Scatchard). Each toxin bound to Y1 cells with similar affinity [KA = (1.5--2.0) x 10(9)M-1], but there appeared to be twice as many receptor sites per cell for E. coli toxin (approximately 4 x 10(5). Despite the… (More)
