Veterinary Medicine:
The Escherichia coli (EC) stx2e encodes Shiga-like toxin 2e (Stx2e). PMID: 11427031 This toxin is excreted by EC that infects newly weaned pigs and causes edema disease. This EC toxin does not affect humans. The symptoms of edema disease include neurological disorders, hemorrhagic lesions, and is often fatal. Stx2e is made up of an enzymatically active A subunit and five B subunits. The B subunits bind to glycolipid receptors of the host cells. A recently developed neutralizing nanobody has been produced to bind to the B subunits and prevent them from binding to the host cell. This nanobody will likely be used to treat edema disease in pigs in the future. PMID: 25053417 Source: Regenstrief LOINC
