Single base substitution and deletion mutation have been introducted into the verotoxin 2 (VT2)A subunit gene from O157:H7 isolates to reduce cytotoxicity of VT2 and the cytotoxicity between wild type toxin and mutant toxoid were compared. A M13-derived recombinant plasmid pEP19RF containing a 940bp EcoRI-PstI fragment of VT2A gene was constructed for oligonucleotide-directed mutagenesis. The duoble mutant pDOEX was constructed by point and deletion mutation of two different highly conserved regions of VT2A encoding active site cleft of enzymatic domain. The key residue, Glu 167(GAA) and the pentamer(WGRIS) consisting of the enzymatic domain were replaced by ASP(GAC) and completely deleted in nucleotide sequence analysis of mutant, respectively. In the comparision of vero cell cytotoxicity between wide type toxin and toxoid from mutant, the wild type toxin expressed cytotoxicity in dilution of $10^{-6}$, but the toxid from mutant did not show cytotoxicity to vero cells.
