NSP4 also acts as a viral enterotoxin (13,14), and the enterotoxic
activity has been mapped to a region, the toxic peptide, spanning amino acids 114-135 of NSP4 (14).

1,2) Despite the existence of several reports regarding the detection of enterotoxic
and cytotoxic activities, the virulence mechanisms related to the enteric infections are not yet completely defined.
cholera, it produces an enterotoxic
hemolysin which enhances its virulence, along with other factors like enterotoxins, proteases, and hemagglutinin.
The toxins have potent enterotoxic
and cytotoxic properties that are responsible for the diarrhea and colitis seen with CDI.
110) Therefore, MucoRice-CTB may be a potential vaccine against the toxin produced by enterotoxic
The gene that codifies ESB was the main enterotoxic
gene detected in this study, followed by ESA; results concur with the findings of Gucukoglu et al (24), who analyzed samples of ice cream and found that the main enterotoxin produced was ESB.

All three toxins have enterotoxic
activity, but Shiga toxin also possesses cytotoxic and neurotoxic activity.
