The action of purified intracellular toxin (PIT) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa was examined in brine shrimp lethality bioassay. The LC50 of the PIT was calculated to be 25 g/ml. The PIT agglutinated both albino rat and rabbit erythrocytes more potently than did extracellular crude toxin (ECT). Galactose and Dmannose, however, inhibited the agglutination property of PIT and ECT respectively. Intradermal injection of PIT caused changes on the tissues of rabbit skin at a lower dose than that of ECT.

Keywords: Pseudomonas aeruginosa toxin, Brine shrimp nauplli, Hemagglutination, Effect on rabbit tissue.
