A Cell-Based Fluorescent Assay to Detect the Activity of AB Toxins that Inhibit Protein Synthesis

Cherubin, P;Quiones, B;Elkahoui, S;Yokoyama, W;Teter, K;

Many AB toxins elicit a cytotoxic effect involving the inhibition of protein synthesis. In this chapter, we describe a simple cell-based fluorescent assay to detect and quantify the inhibition of protein synthesis. The assay can also identify and characterize toxin inhibitors.
