, dubbed BoNT/En, is the ninth botulinum toxin
to be described.
Reflex testing with a toxin
assay as the second portion of the algorithm reduced the number of patients with discordant results to a more manageable number.
One of the most common causes of food poisoning is the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, which produces a wide range of toxins
The opposite results in their paper showed that more detailed studies are obviously needed to confirm the interaction mechanism between Bt toxin
and metal ions.
in the sample inhibited the synthesis of GFP, reducing GFP production in relation to the amount of toxin
This is a very sophisticated and smart way for bacterial toxins
This method solves the delivery issue that probably led to the failure of recent clinical trials aimed at delivering purified cancer-killing toxins
into patients' brains.
-studded nanosponges served as vaccines capable of triggering neutralizing antibodies and fighting off otherwise lethal doses of the toxin
On receipt, samples were shucked immediately and dissected into foot muscle and digestive gland for toxin
The effects can last from days to months, depending on the toxin
However, patient diagnosis was made solely through fecal toxin
testing, and strains were not characterized.
Further proof of the involvement of these cells was gained from studies where toxin
was injected into the animals' skin.
