Description

Reconstitution

Each vial, when reconstituted with 50 μl of sterile distilled water, contains 10 μg of tetanus toxin C-fragment in 0.01 M sodium phosphate, pH 7.5. To aid recovery, 0.1% albumin may be added.

Application

The C terminal binding portion of tetanus toxin is not toxic but is taken up by pre-synaptic nerve terminals and exhibits trans-synaptic retrograde transport in central neurons similar to that of tetanus toxin. It is used to map neuronal connections and to target proteins to neurons.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Tetanus toxin is a neurotoxin that comprises of a heavy and a light chain linked by disulfide bridges. This neurotoxin enters the cytoplasm and releases the light chain component that subsequently inhibits the release of neurotransmitters2. Studies have reported that the fragment C of tetanus toxin retains most of the determinants that interact with thyroid membranes, gangliosides and neural membranes3.
