Description

Specificity
Rabbit Anti-Anthrax Lethal Factor (Anthrax LF) recognizes an epitope in the intermediate domain of Anthrax LF. This polyclonal antibody was purified using affinity chromatography.
Background
Anthrax infection is initiated by the inhalation, ingestion, or cutaneous contact with Bacillus anthracis endospores. B. anthracis produces three polypeptides that comprise the anthrax toxin: protective antigen (PA), lethal factor (LF), and edema factor (EF)1,2. PA binds to two related proteins on the cell surface; these are termed tumor epithelial marker 8 (TEM8)/anthrax toxin receptor (ATR)3 and capillary morphogenesis protein 2 (CMG2),4 although it is still unclear which is physiologically relevant. Following PA binding to its receptor, PA is cleaved into two fragments by a furin-like protease. The bound fragment binds both LF and EF; the resulting complex is then endocytosed which allows the translocation of LF and EF into the cytoplasm. These toxins are usually sufficient to cause rapid cell death, and often the death of the organism.
