Abstract

The substitution of the serine 195 residue of staphylococcal exfoliative toxin A by a cysteine residue led to a biologically inactive protein. This result is consistent with the hypothesis that exfoliative toxin A could be a protease or a lipase. However, no protease or lipase activity was detected with the native toxin.
