Part Description

LP212153-3   Clostridium botulinum toxin D botD gene
Clostridium botulinum is a gram positive, anaerobic bacterium that produces a potent neurotoxin that binds to presynaptic nerve terminals preventing release of acetylcholine, blocking neurotransmission. C. botulinum Toxin types A, B, E, F can produce severe, potentially fatal illness in humans. Types C and D are pathogenic in avians, and the pathogenicity of type G is unknown. 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 C. botulinum bacteria grow in their intestinal tract. Wound botulism occurs when open skin lesions or wounds are infected with C. botulinum that secretes the toxin. C. botulinum 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.
