Quick Reference

A toxin (verotoxin) from Shigella dysenteriae. Shiga toxin and the shiga-like toxins (SLTs) are structurally related AB toxins with a pentameric B subunit that binds globotriaosylceramide. The A subunit is internalized and cleaved into two parts and the A1 component then binds to the ribosome, disrupting protein synthesis.
