The EI T or haemolysin, product of hlyA, is exported from Vibrio cholerae as a Mr 80,000 protein which can be subsequently cleaved to give two proteins of Mr 65,000 and 15,000. Nucleotide sequence analysis has demonstrated that hlyA encodes a protein of Mr 82,250 with a potential 18-amino-acid signal sequence. The non-haemolytic classical strain 569B has been shown to have a structural gene defect rather than a defect in secretion. By non-reciprocal recombination it was possible to transfer… CONTINUE READING
