LP204848-8   Clostridioides difficile toxin A+B tcdA+tcdB genes
Clostridium difficile toxin's A and B are encoded by the tcdA and tcdB genes, respectively.[PMID:20664812] They share similar molecular characteristics with comparable sizes (308 kD for tcdA and 269 for tcdB) and 63% homology in their amino acid sequences.[PMID:9312171] TcdA and tcdB are expressed in response to environmental stresses, such as antibiotics.[ PMID 15831824] Nucleic acid sequences within these genes are targeted to confirm the presence of C. difficile toxins and diagnose the cause of diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, nausea and other toxin-producing symptoms.
