    The multifunctional autoprocessing repeats-in-toxin (MARTX) toxin of Vibrio cholerae causes destruction of the actin cytoskeleton by covalent cross-linking of actin and inactivation of Rho GTPases. The effector domains responsible for these activities are here shown to be independent proteins released from the large toxin by autoproteolysis catalyzed by an embedded cysteine protease domain (CPD). The CPD is activated upon binding inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6). In this study, we demonstrated that InsP6 is not simply an allosteric cofactor, but rather binding of InsP6 stabilized the CPD structure, facilitating formation of the enzyme-substrate complex.
