Abstract

We have developed a system that makes it possible to study the fate of a foreign polypeptide that is inserted in the plasma membrane. Diphtheria toxin is a bacterial protein toxin that, upon acidification, has the ability to insert into the plasma membrane from the outside of eukaryotic cells. We present results that indicate endocytic uptake and… (More)
