Superantigenic properties of the group A streptococcal exotoxin SpeF (MF).

Abstract

Streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin F (SpeF), previously referred to as mitogenic factor, is a newly described potent mitogen produced by group A streptococci. To investigate whether this protein belongs to the family of microbial superantigens, we analyzed the cellular and molecular requirements for its presentation to T cells and compared it with the known… (More)
