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  . ...doi:10.1007/s10822-014-9758-7 pmid:24958623 pmcid:PMC4138512 fatcat:mver6lal2ncm3av4wteqmoafte

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) . ...doi:10.1146/annurev.biochem.051908.125345 pmid:20233039 fatcat:hxls6zoqpvafhh5l7i76wvghkq
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. ...
