Abstract [en]

In this report, we describe the cytotoxic activity of the cholera hemagglutinin/protease (HA/protease). A concentrated protein sample from the 37 degrees C overnight culture supernatant of CVD110, a delta ctxA, delta zot, delta Ace and hlyA::(ctxB mer) mutant of El Tor biotype Ogawa serotype strain E7946 caused morphological changes in cultured MDCK-I epithelial cells and altered their arrangement of filamentous actin (F-actin) and Zonula occludens-associated protein ZO-1. The drastic morphological changes can be inhibited by Zincov, a specific bacterial metalloprotease inhibitor. The cytotoxic fractions of the sample after FPLC gelfiltration fractionation showed two visible protein bands with molecular weights of approximately 34- and 32 kDa. Microsequencing of these two proteins revealed that they were the cholera HA/protease.
