Taipoxin, an extremely potent presynaptic neurotoxin from the venom of the australian snake taipan (Oxyuranus s. scutellatus). Isolation, characterization, quaternary structure and pharmacological
Taipoxin (taipan toxin), purified from the venom of the Australian taipan (Oxyuranus s. scutellatus) by gel filtration on Sephadex G-75 followed by column zone electrophoresis, is the most lethalExpand

Activation of the contractile mechanism in striated muscle.
Summary. 1 When a frog's striated muscle (m. sartorius) is immersed in Ringer solution containing 2.5–10 × 10–4 w/v of the free base caffeine tension develops and the muscle contracts. TheExpand

Effects of botulinum toxin on neuromuscular transmission in the rat.
1. Botulinum toxin (BoTx) type A partially blocks spontaneous transmitter release from nerve terminals in the rat. Minature end‐plate potentials (m.e.p.p.s) are present at all end‐plates, initiallyExpand

The effects of taipoxin and notexin on the function and fine structure of the murine neuromuscular junction
The isolated neurotoxins taipoxin and notexin from the venoms of the Elapidae, Oxyuranus scutellatus and Notechis scutatus scutatus respectively cause a neuromuscular block when administered to theExpand

Miniature end‐plate potentials in rat skeletal muscle poisoned with botulinum toxin.
Spontaneous transmitter release, recorded as miniature end‐plate potentials (m.e.p.p.s), was studied in rat extensor digitorum longus (e.d.l.) and soleus muscles partially or completely paralysed byExpand

Antagonism of the paralysis produced by botulinum toxin in the rat: The effects of tetraethylammonium, guanidine and 4-aminopyridine
The injection of botulinum toxin type A into the hind-leg of adult rats causes complete paralysis of the leg lasting for several weeks. In the extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscle transmitterExpand
