Accessory toxins of vibriopathogens and their role in epithelial disruption during infection
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2018)
Understanding the structure and function of Bacillus thuringiensis toxins
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2016-01)
As biological control agents take an expanding share of the pesticides market and the production of insect-resistant crops increases, it is essential to understand the structure and function of the active agents, the ...
Clostridium perfringens epsilon toxin inhibits the gastrointestinal transit in mice
Epsilon toxin produced by Clostridium perfringens type B and D is a potent toxin that is responsible for a highly fatal enterotoxemia in sheep and goats. In vitro, epsilon toxin produces contraction of the rat ileum as the ...
Toxin-antitoxin systems and its biotechnological applications
Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are important genetic modules composed by two elements: a toxin, that is always a protein, and an antitoxin, that can be a RNA or a protein and neutralizes the toxic effect of toxin. These ...
A natural combinatorial chemistry strategy in acylpolyamine toxins from Nephilinae orb-web spiders
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2005-01-01)
The present study shows how nature combined a small number of chemical building blocks to synthesize the acylpolyamine toxins in the venoms of Nephilinae orb-web spiders. Considering these structures in four parts, it was ...
