Formation of Ring-Shaped Structures on Erythrocyte Membranes after Treatment with Botulinolysin, a Thiol-Activated Hemolysin from Clostridium botulinum
ABSTRACT Damage to erythrocyte membranes by botulinolysin (BLY) was studied by electron microscopy, which revealed ring-shaped structures with inner diameters and widths of approximately 32 and 6.7
A New Isoquinolinone Derivative with Noble Vasorelaxation Activity
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the vasorelaxation effect of BDPBI on PHE-precontracted aortic rings is partly dependent on the activation of a histaminergic receptor from the vascular endothelium.
Modulation of intracellular Ca2+ levels by Scorpaenidae venoms.
The pharmacological activity of fish venoms.
The MACPF/CDC family of pore-forming toxins
TLDR
Structural data suggest that lytic MACPF proteins use a CDC‐like mechanism of membrane disruption, and will help understand the roles these proteins play in immunity and development.
Role of Pore-Forming Toxins in Bacterial Infectious Diseases
TLDR
Common functions of PFTs include disruption of epithelial barrier function and evasion of host immune responses, which contribute to bacterial growth and spreading, make this group of toxins an attractive target for the development of new virulence-targeted therapies that may have broad activity against human pathogens.

Thromboxane-mediated hypertension and vascular leakage evoked by low doses of Escherichia coli hemolysin in rabbit lungs.
TLDR
It is concluded that E. coli hemolysin can elicit thromboxane-mediated pulmonary hypertension combined with severe vascular leakage in isolated lungs in the absence of circulating inflammatory cells and humoral mediator systems, mimicking the key events in the development of acute respiratory failure in states of septicemia.
Staphylococcal alpha-toxin-induced vascular leakage in isolated perfused rabbit lungs.
TLDR
Pulmonary microvascular endothelium cells are identified as highly susceptible targets for attack by alpha-toxin, which might directly contribute to the pathogenesis of acute respiratory failure under conditions of severe infection with Staphylococcus aureus.
Induction of severe vascular leakage by low doses of Escherichia coli hemolysin in perfused rabbit lungs.
TLDR
Although both pore formers provoke severe vascular leakage in the authors' experimental model, the underlying pathways probably divert fundamentally from each other.
Production, purification, and characterization of botulinolysin, a thiol-activated hemolysin of Clostridium botulinum
TLDR
The purified hemolysin had a lethal effect in mice and was cytotoxic for some cultured cells: its 50% lethal dose in mice was 310 ng, and the 50% cytot toxic dose for Vero cells was 120 ng/ml.
Induction of vascular injury by Pseudomonas aeruginosa cytotoxin in rabbit lungs is associated with the generation of different leukotrienes and hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids.
TLDR
It seems that Pseudomonas cytotoxin induces generation of LTs and HETEs in rabbit lungs that may contribute to the development of pulmonary microvascular injury evoked by this bacterial agent.
AN ANALYSIS OF THE TOXIC ACTIONS OF PURIFIED STREPTOLYSIN O ON THE ISOLATED HEART AND SEPARATE CARDIAC TISSUES OF THE GUINEA PIG
TLDR
Tests on spontaneously beating isolated atrial pairs show that the toxin induces a dose-dependent, reversible, decline in rate and amplitude which is accompanied by a marked, but transient, increase in the velocity of repolarization of the intracellular potential.
Pertussis toxin inhibits contractions but not endothelium-dependent relaxations of rabbit pulmonary artery in response to acetylcholine and other agonists.
TLDR
Data demonstrate that contractions of pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells after stimulation through muscarinic receptors, alpha adrenoceptors and serotonin receptors require the influx of extracellular Ca++, likely to be regulated by a PTX-sensitive G protein.
The obligatory role of endothelial cells in the relaxation of arterial smooth muscle by acetylcholine
TLDR
It is demonstrated that relaxation of isolated preparations of rabbit thoracic aorta and other blood vessels by ACh requires the presence of endothelial cells, and that ACh, acting on muscarinic receptors of these cells, stimulates release of a substance(s) that causes relaxation of the vascular smooth muscle.
Pulmonary microvascular injury induced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa cytotoxin in isolated rabbit lungs
TLDR
It is concluded that pseudomonal cytotoxin may be an important factor in the pathogenesis of prolonged microvascular injury, encountered in states of P. aeruginosa sepsis or acute lung failure with secondarily acquired P. aircraft pneumonia.
