Part Description

LP201806-9   Clostridium baratii toxin F bont gene
Clostridium baratii and the more commonly known C. botulinum are gram positive, anaerobic bacteria that produce a potent neurotoxin (BoNT) that binds to presynaptic nerve terminals preventing release of acetylcholine, blocking neurotransmission. Both C. botulinum Toxin types A, B, E, F and C. baratii type F can produce severe, potentially fatal illness in humans. Illness can occur as foodborne botulism which occurs when a person ingests pre-formed toxin that leads to illness within a few hours to days. Foodborne botulism is a public health emergency because the contaminated food may still be available to other persons besides the patient. Infant botulism occurs in a small number of susceptible infants each year who become infected when C. botulinum or C. baratii bacteria grow in their intestinal tract. Wound botulism occurs when open skin lesions or wounds are infected with C. botulinum that secretes the toxin. It is also important to recognize that C. botulinum and C. baratii and the associated toxins are on the Department of Health and Human Services and the USDA list of Select Agents that could be used as weapons of bioterrorism. For this reason, it is necessary to have a rapid testing procedure that can determine if this toxin could be present in patient samples. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
