About this work


Molecular model of the staphylococcal enterotoxin C2 protein. This bacterial superantigen has extremely strong immunostimulatory properties, cross linking MHC class II molecules with T-cell receptors to bring about cytokine production in T-cells which leads onto various shock related symptoms.
