This product is derived from a recombinant P. multocida ToxA with His6-tag at N-terminal expressed in E. coli.
Pasteurella multocida toxin (PMT) is produced by a gram-negative bacillus, Pasteurella multocida. PMT activates the Gq and G12/13 dependent signaling pathways. Gq and G12/13 are alpha subunits of the GTP trimer bound protein of animal cells. It does not activate the highly related G11-dependent pathways. This toxin binds to a ganglioside-type cell surface receptor, acts intracellularly after having been internalized through an endocytic pathway, and has pleiotropic effects on cell physiology. Therefore, it does not function on receptor-deficient cells or cells defective in the endocytosis pathway.
