Escherichia coli Heat-labile Enterotoxin NUCLEOTIDE

Abstract

We report the complete DNA sequence of the Escherichia coli elt A gene, which codes for the A subunit of the heat-labile enterotoxin, LT. The amino acid sequence of the LT A subunit has been deduced from the DNA sequence of elt A. The LT A subunit starts with methionine, ends with leucine, and comprises 264 amino acids. The computed molecular weight… (More)
