at no cost to registered researchers.
Description: Shiga Toxin Type 2, Recombinant from Escherichia coli
Organism: Escherichia coli
Biosafety Level: 2
Availability Status: In Stock
Store at: -20°C or colder
Contributor: AD O'Brien, JF Sinclair
Quantity limit per order for this item is 1. This item can be ordered twice a year. Orders over this limit will be sent to NIAID for approval before shipment. 

Recombinant Shiga toxin type 2 was expressed in Escherichia coli (E. coli) and purified by affinity chromatography.

The sequences of Stx2 for multiple strains of E. coli have been determined and the crystal structure of Stx2 from E. coli has been resolved (PMB: 1R4P).

Each vial of NR-4478 contains approximately 10 µg of Shiga toxin type 2 suspended in PBS.
