2014 Journal of Computer-Aided Molecular Design  
Botulinum neurotoxin serotype A (BoNT/A) is the most lethal toxin among the Tier 1 Select Agents.  ...  Finally, we performed database virtual screening for novel inhibitors of BoNT/A targeting the exosites.  ...  Serotype A (BoNT/A) is one of seven known serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins (A-G), and has an estimated human LD 50 of only 1 ng/kg [3] .  ...

Botulinum Neurotoxin: A Marvel of Protein Design

Mauricio Montal
2010 Annual Review of Biochemistry  
This review summarizes current knowledge on the structure of individual modules and presents mechanistic insights into how this protein machine evolved to this level of sophistication.  ...  Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), the causative agent of botulism, is acknowledged to be the most poisonous protein known.  ...  An extensive in silico screening of the National Cancer Institute database into the active site of LC/A led to the identification of five quinolinol-based protease inhibitors (156) .  ...

2018 Toxins  
Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are highly successful protein therapeutics.  ...  In nature, BoNTs are encoded by DNA in producing clostridial bacteria and, as such, are amenable to recombinant production through insertion of the coding DNA into other bacterial species.  ...  Acknowledgments: We thank Shilpa Palan and Joseph Burgon for their comments on the manuscript. Conflicts of Interest: All authors are Ipsen employees.  ...
