Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Staphylococcal enterotoxins are responsible for food poisoning and toxic shock syndrome due to their superantigen activity on T cells. Although their activity necessarily involves passage through the intestinal epithelium, little is known about this critical step. In the present study, we compared the in vitro transport of staphylococcal enterotoxin A through human intestinal absorptive and M cells. We found that the transport of the toxin through M cells was polarized and temperature-sensitive, in contrast with the less efficient transport of the toxin by absorptive cells. These data suggest the involvement of M cells in the intestinal absorption of staphylococcal enterotoxins.
