Enterotoxin type Benterotoxin type b
In the field of molecular biology, enterotoxin type B, also known as Staphylococcal enterotoxin B SEB, is an enterotoxin produced by the gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus It is a common cause of food poisoning, with severe diarrhea, nausea and intestinal cramping often starting within a few hours of ingestion1 Being quite stable,2 the toxin may remain active even after the contaminating bacteria are killed It can withstand boiling at 100 °C for a few minutes1 Gastroenteritis occurs because SEB is a superantigen, causing the immune system to release a large amount of cytokines that lead to significant inflammation
Additionally, this protein is one of the causative agents of toxic shock syndrome

The function of this protein is to facilitate the infection of the host organism It is a virulence factor designed to induce pathogenesis3 One of the major virulence exotoxins is the toxic shock syndrome toxin TSST, which is secreted by the organism upon successful invasion It causes a major inflammatory response in the host via superantigenic properties, and is the causative agent of toxic shock syndrome It functions as a superantigen through activation of a significant fraction of T-cells up to 20% by cross-linking MHC class II molecules with T-cell receptors TSST is a multisystem illness with several symptoms such as high fever, hypotension, dizziness, rash and peeling skin3
All of these toxins share a similar two-domain fold N and C-terminal domains with a long alpha-helix in the middle of the molecule, a characteristic beta-barrel known as the "oligosaccharide/oligonucleotide fold" at the N-terminal domain and a beta-grasp motif at the C-terminal domain Each superantigen possesses slightly different binding modes when it interacts with MHC class II molecules or the T-cell receptor4
The N-terminal domain is also referred to as OB-fold, or in other words the oligonuclucleotide binding fold This region contains a low-affinity major histocompatibility complex class II MHC II site which causes an inflammatory response5
The N-terminal domain contains regions involved in Major Histocompatibility Complex class II association It is a five stranded beta barrel that forms an OB fold678
The beta-grasp domain has some structural similarities to the beta-grasp motif present in immunoglobulin-binding domains, ubiquitin, 2Fe-2 S ferredoxin and translation initiation factor 3 as identified by the SCOP database
