Coli LT1 and LT2. A:B types are encountered in diphtheria, botulism and tetanus. tetani and C. botulinum, which cause tetanus and botulism respectively. These diseases are purely due to toxin-mediated action following infection and are quite different in pathology, yet the molecular action of the two toxins is identical. They are both endopeptidases specific for synaptobrevin, a protein found in the cytoplasm of synaptic vesicles. However, the binding (B) domains of the toxins show different specificities for cell receptors.
