The role of the reactive disulfide bond in the interaction of cholera-toxin functional regions.

Abstract

The chemical reactivity of disulfide bonds towards reducing agents, in the absence of denaturing conditions, in cholera toxin has been studied. Treatment of the toxin with dithiothreitol or other mercaptans gave selective reduction of one of the six disulfide bonds of the protein. This reactive disulfide links two distinct functional regions of the toxin… (More)
