Interaction of Bordetella pertussis adenylate cyclase with CD11b/CD18: Role of toxin acylation and identification of the main integrin interaction domain.

Abstract

Adenylate cyclase toxin (CyaA) is one of the major virulence factors produced by Bordetella pertussis, the whooping cough agent. CyaA belongs to the repeat in toxin protein family and requires a post-translational fatty acylation to form cation-selective channels in target cell membranes and to penetrate into cytosol. We have demonstrated recently that CyaA… (More)
