Purification of type E botulinum neurotoxin by high-performance ion exchange chromatography.

A purification procedure for type E botulinum neurotoxin has been developed, based solely on high-performance ion exchange chromatography. The method exploits the differential chromatographic behavior of the free neurotoxin versus the neurotoxin-protein 12S complex. The high purity of the product was demonstrated with sodium dodecyl sulfate-gel… (More)
