Descriptor toxina diftérica
Entry term(s) toxina de Corynebacterium diphtheriae
Scope note: Polipéptido de ribosilación del ADP producido por CORYNEBACTERIUM DIPHTHERIAE que causa los signos y síntomas de la DIFTERIA. Puede escindirse en dos dominios desiguales: el más pequeño, el dominio A catalítico, es la porción mortal y contiene MONO(ADP-RIBOSA)-TRANSFERASAS, que transfieren ADP RIBOSA al FACTOR 2 DE ELONGACIÓN DE PÉPTIDOS, inhibiendo así la síntesis proteica; y el dominio B, de mayor tamaño, necesario para la entrada en las células.

Scope note: An ADP-ribosylating polypeptide produced by CORYNEBACTERIUM DIPHTHERIAE that causes the signs and symptoms of DIPHTHERIA. It can be broken into two unequal domains: the smaller, catalytic A domain is the lethal moiety and contains MONO(ADP-RIBOSE) TRANSFERASES which transfers ADP RIBOSE to PEPTIDE ELONGATION FACTOR 2 thereby inhibiting protein synthesis; and the larger B domain that is needed for entry into cells.
