Many proteins are secreted in their inactive form. This is also true of many toxic proteins produced by micro organisms. Explain how the mechanism is useful for the organism producing the toxin?
The mechanism is useful for micro-organisms because they become active only by certain metabolic and biochemical changes like pH changes or temperature changes. This makes these toxins resistant to protein and the micro-organisms do not get killed by the host's protein action.
