Part Description

LP201810-1   Escherichia coli shiga-like toxin 1+2
Shiga-like toxin is generated by some strains of Escherichia coli, known as Stx-producing E. coli (STEC). Shiga-like toxins are named for their similarity to the AB5-type shiga toxin produced by the bacteria Shigella dysenteriae. There are two primary types, known as Stx1 (also Stx1a or SLT1) and Stx2 (also Stx2a or SLT2). Variants of Stx1 and Stx2 have been identified but they are rarely found in clinical specimens and few are clinically significant. [PMID: 25530917] Shiga-like toxins are associated with hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) in which patients present with thrombocytopenia, hemolytic anemia, and kidney failure.
