Retrograde transport of cholera toxin into the ER of host cells
Cholera toxin moves from the plasma membrane to the ER of host cells to cause disease. Here we discuss recent studies on the mechanism of transport from plasma membrane to the ER and on the reactions that unfold and retrotranslocate a portion of the toxin to the cytosol where toxicity is induced.
