    "Exotoxins are usually heat labile proteins secreted by certain species of bacteria which diffuse into the surrounding medium.

    Endotoxins are heat stable lipopolysaccharide-protein complexes which form structural components of cell wall of Gram Negative Bacteria and liberated only on cell lysis or death of bacteria."
