 A B toxins are toxins with 2 subunits, A and B. A B toxins are normally secreted by pathogenic bacteria. the A subunit is known as the 'active' subunit, because this subunit uses enzymes to interfere with proteins in the host cell. This interference can cause proteins to become inactive. The B subunit is known as the 'binding' subunit, because this subunit binds to receptors on the host cell[1].


  1. A B toxins are toxins with 2 subunits, A and B. A B toxins are normally secreted by pathogenic bacteria. The A subunit is known as the 'active' subunit, because this subunit uses enzymes to interfere with proteins in the host cell. this interference can cause proteins to become inactive. The B subunit is known as the 'binding' subunit, because this subunit binds to receptors on the host cell
