Clostridium botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are the most toxic substances known. They exert potent neuroparalysis on vertebrates. C. botulinum produces seven serotypes of neurotoxin (A-G). BoNT/A, found in bacterial cultures of C. botulinum type A, is produced as a complex with a group of neurotoxin associated proteins (NAPs). Botulinum neurotoxin complex is the only known example of a protein complex where a group of proteins (NAPs) protect another protein (BoNT) against the acidity and… CONTINUE READING
