Placental and intestinal alkaline phosphatases are receptors for Aeromonas sobria hemolysin.

The Aeromonas sobria hemolysin causes diarrhea following infection by this enteropathogenic bacterium. We previously identified the putative receptor for A. sobria hemolysin as a p66 protein on Intestine 407 cells (Microb. Pathog. 27 (1999) 215-221). Here, we have partially purified and obtained a peptide mass fingerprint of p66 which revealed its identity… (More)
