Antigenic sites characterization and in Silico annotation of the Staphylococcus aureus Enterotoxins
Shruti Mishra, Prashant Ankur Jain and Raghvendra Raman Mishra
Food poisoning is one of the sensitive infection with a rapid spread and bulk victims in one epidemic. Though seems to be a small problem it would result in a major effect of high concern. Food poisoning is caused by the enterotoxins secreted by the bacterium staphylococcus aureus. The toxins are of various types and cause a random infection which makes the treatment less effective and needs the diagnosis of the type of enterotoxin causing the specific symptom. Owing to the importance of staphylococcus aureus and its role in food poisoning, the current work was undertaken to analyse the Sequence, Structural and Antigenic characteristics of the 5 enterotoxin coding genes SEA, SEB, SEC, SED and SEE. Various In silico tools and software have been used to perform the analysis. This data can be employed further for the development of a drug or enterotoxin specific therapy.
