This investigation was carried out to identify the protein marker for
veratoxin from clinically isolated E.coli samples. The E.coli samples
were isolated from clinical samples like blood, urine and stool of infected patients. The E.coli samples were conformed by the growth of the bacteria on EMB agar medium where they showed metallic sheath. The E.coli samples were grown on nutrient broth for the isolation of the protein. The proteins were precipitated using ammonium sulphate.
The proteins got precipitated at 50% saturation of ammonium sulphate. The eluted proteins were then identified using SDS-PAGE with standard protein marker. Three E.coli samples isolated showed the
band with 32,000KDa determing the presence of veratoxin protein in the E. coli samples.
